just_funOn what criteria is a port added to contrib? What puzzels me is that most of the maintainers (core, opt, contrib) have a personal repo. Why do they not maintain the ports it in contrib repo?09:47
frinnstwell the most obvious criteria imho is that a port ought to be useful for more than 2-3 people.10:18
frinnstmy reasons for "maintaining" stuff in my personal repo is: 1. quick and dirty port that I might want to use on more than one computer - but not polished enough for distribution10:19
frinnst2. local changes / other version than what's already in one of the other repos10:20
frinnstmy pidgin port for example; stripped down functionality and minimal deps10:23
frinnstmy smplayer: hate the new version10:23
frinnstbind: other branch than the contrib port10:24

just_funThanks, frinnst. It confused me that when no one wanted to maintain a port it was dropped, and I didn't see the symmetry when adding ports. So, it is basically, while (willingness and worthiness and usefulness) stay-in-contrib.10:46
frinnstyeah its not easy to maintain something that you don't use every day10:52
