I'll take this one via proxy-maint if no dev wants it after a week.

[gentoo-dev] Multiple misc. Python packages for grabs

2016-10-29 Thread Michał Górny
Hello,

The Python team is dropping itself from maintainers of the following
packages. As a result, those packages no longer have any maintainer:

app-admin/supervisor
app-editors/leo
app-misc/yworklog
app-text/pdfminer
app-text/pylize
dev-util/bumpversion
dev-util/tailor
net-ftp/pybootd
net-im/turses
net-irc/redirbot
net-misc/charm
net-misc/pycnb
net-misc/whatportis
net-news/rawdog
net-voip/blink
sys-process/glances
www-apps/bitten
x11-misc/menumaker

Those packages are not really part of the Python ecosystem. Most of
them had python@g.o added as a co-maintainer (or in some cases as
the only maintainer, without even bothering to ping us) because
the software in question was written in Python, and never had been
really maintained by the Python team. Once the primary maintainer
abandoned them, they became sole Python team responsibility.

Using this opportunity, I would like to note that there really is no
reason to add Python team as co-maintainers to every software ever
written in Python. The Python team focuses on maintaining tools
and modules needed to use and develop Python on Gentoo.
