Scratching my own itch (thanks to Hanno for suggesting I look at the component owner list in trac), I pulled together this list of current component owners, sorted into owned and unowned.

I wonder how effectively Daniel can manage this, given that it's such a big piece of code. It'd be good to make sure we can form out bugs here to others as needed.

I really wish I could give this to someone else... I don't "own" this in any meaningful way, and I think I become a bottleneck.

NuPlone Theme              limi

Limi is probably a bottleneck here. Unfortunately, we struggle to find people willing to own template/visual bugs.

WebDAV                     dreamcatcher

This one tends to bottleneck, because not enough people know very much about WebDAV.


ATReferenceBrowserWidget Accessibility Calendar and time Content Types

This one really should have an owner, since it's so fundamental.

Discussions Documentation Infrastructure (kind of a broad area)

Right, we should rationalise this away.

Login and registration

This one badly needs an owner. I think Wichert was looking after it, but realised he couldn't keep up.

Permissions RSS RTL Upgrade/Migration Usability (also a pretty broad area)

Ditto - I think Wichert gave up on this one.

Visual and templates

This one is huge, and used to be Limi's.

Wiki support (Wicked) Workflow Working copy support (Iterate)


Are there owned components where the owner is not active?

Are there unowned components that are actually owned?

Which unowned components are the most critical to get owners for?

See above.

Are there unnamed components that need owners?

Are there unnamed components that have owners?

Should I take this discussion out to the dev list? ;-)

Please! If we can define what a component owner does, we can probably recruit some more.
