[PHP-DEV] Maintainership dates
July 03, 2018 08:00AM
Hi!

Following up the proposal from Sara, I've made a patch to add dates to
maintainership status in EXTENSIONS:
https://github.com/php/php-src/pull/3357

I didn't touch SAPIs because it's not clear what to do with them (to me).

Please check it out and comment. We have a bunch of extensions where
official maintainers haven't touched the code for 10+ years, so we need
to think what to do about it.

Thanks,

I do not see much of an issue there, so I suggest to postpone any action.

In my opinion, these should be treated basically like unmaintained
extensions, i.e. issue a call for maintainership. It seems to be
appropriate to explicitly CC the listed maintainers, though.

However, I would prefer to issue the calls for maintainership one by
one, or more likely in small chunks, to avoid excessive flooding of the
mailing list. It also might be sensible to wait until 7.3 feature
freeze, or at least until the traffic on [email protected] abates.

Sounds good. Anybody wants to help with writing the text for the call
(it should include some explanations about what it is about and what the
person is to do) and on which venues it should be announced?
