 Well, that reminds me - just stick [EMAIL PROTECTED] (or whatever else) to
 maintainer field then and put it first, enough of a hint for me :)

Should we then use this metadata-file (maintainer before herd tag):

!DOCTYPE pkgmetadata SYSTEM http://www.gentoo.org/dtd/metadata.dtd;
pkgmetadata
maintainer
email[EMAIL PROTECTED]/email
nameGentoo VDR Project/name
/maintainer

 Hi!
 
 As the situation now has changed I would like to discuss this one
 more. Since one week we (hd_brummy and me) have changed our Gentoo
 VDR Project
 (http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/video/vdr/index.xml) to an
 official subproject of desktop/video.
 
 Now the situation is as follows:
 Most packages have historically either 
 a) one of us or
 b) both as a maintainer
 and the herd media-tv as fallback.
 c) The newest ebuilds have herd media-tv and [EMAIL PROTECTED] (projects 
 mail-address) as maintainer.
 
 
 We now think that this should be unified. Our ideal would be having
 the concept of a sub-herd.
 The best realizable alternatives we can think of are:
 c) herd media-tv and [EMAIL PROTECTED] (projects mail-address) as
 maintainer. d) create an own herd vdr.

A package can belong to more than one herd.  So you could create a
media-vdr herd, and have two herd tags in the metadata.xml for the vdr
packages; media-tv and media-vdr (I suggest the media- prefix as it's
not necessarily obvious what vdr means on its own).  If you do this,
make sure there's a maintainer tag.

However (c) seems to be the most sensible approach.

 
 
 What do you think of that?

My idea would actually be the contrary: that the package is assigned
to its maintainer (who could not be in the herd) and the herd(s) are
CCed. Uven if the maintainer is in the herd, this procedure should be
followed, as it is easier for the maintainer to track down the
package.
