Hi Ben,

Thank you very much reaction. Are you currently the only one active developer of the project?

About the bugtrack: I have never seen the old bugtrack working. I think, some migration option should exist to convert the things to the sourcehut.

In the sourcehut bugtrack, I have made some changes, mostly simple bugfixes. I reported them in the issue. May I ask you, how can I get a merge?

Beside these, also my request for inclusion is waiting for approval. How can I get it?

Kindly regards,

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the prompting and also for your support of others on the
issue tracker! I haven't been very responsive on the mailing list, issue
tracker or IRC recently, so apologies to those who have had to wait or
haven't been able to resolve their issues.

(For context, this unresponsiveness is somewhat intentional. To make
sure I don't burn out and am here for MediaGoblin in the longer-term, I
sometimes need to curb my volunteering for many months at a time to
accommodate family and work commitments. This year I made time to coach
my kids field hockey team, and a few weeks back we finally made a start
on the backyard tree-house we'd been talking about for years - no
regrets there! :) Also for context, for many people here in Australia,
the last weeks before Christmas and summer holidays are extraordinarily
busy, so it's likely the support situation won't improve significantly
in the next month or so.)

Checking just now, it does appear we had moderation set on for new
mailing list subscribers. Moderated posts were being approved in a reasonably
timely manner, I don't think there's any need this restriction right
now, so I've removed it and un-moderated all moderated users.

I haven't been monitoring on the MediaGoblin IRC recently. When I'm
actively working on the project or around the time of a release I do
tend to hang around.

The Sourcehut issue tracker
is our primary issue tracker going forwards.

Our legacy issue tracker,, has been unstable for
a number of years. It was previously also plagued by spam and
performance issues, but I resolved those a couple of years
back. Shutting it down is one option, but then we lose a lot of useful
historical info, so it's not quite that simple. This is certainly
somewhere we could use help, since responding to tickets would be a
better use of my time than dealing with infrastructure.
