I may not be the most diplomatic at times, but I haven't escalated to personal attacks either, nor have I tried pinning comments in the sole purpose of shaming other users. It needn't be said that such course of action is not acceptable.

In any event, the 2 week period must be followed. Either "move on" or file an orphan request.

edit: since I can't reply to aur-requests at the moment, here's my response to the new orphan request:

Re-opening an orphan request with malicious intent is melodrama. You could have asked me directly instead of making the request or commenting here; my email is on my account page. Let's not get confused about where the melodrama is coming from.

Why would I want your help, since you are a) being very rude and b) not competent (see my previous comment)?

Unless a TU wants to step in and let you have your way it is a definite no for me. Zero interest in working with you. The package is fixed so I'm going to move on with my life now. Sorry you're feeling small.

gemaputr, please spare me of your melodrama. Fact is that any maintainer gets a 2-week grace period on orphan requests, so it makes more than sense that the same counts for comaintainers. That's all there is to add here.

@Alad Sorry I just wanted to leave the project to anyone who wanted to pick it up, so thought this made sense.

@Alad, I apologize if my actions caused you distress. The comment from BlackLotus was posted 2 weeks ago and no action was taken during that time.

I think it is justifiable to assume that the package has been abandoned if it has been broken for an extended length of time and no action is taken by the maintainers, particularly if a resolution has been provided. I hope you can understand that my intent was not to harm you.

Normally I would have no issues, but I see that you have re-submitted an orphan request... That is intellectually dishonest. You have neglected a duty that you volunteered to undertake for over 2 weeks. And now you're behaving maliciously. Not cool.

You know, you could give someone more than 1 day time before messing with the maintainer list... especially when you're a new maintainer in name only and have yet to fix anything.

cf3e8ff350796165d20cd7078d2048ee82e850cb removed autotools (and with it ./prepare)

So now the prepare statement is something like

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--enable-debug \
--enable-pgp \
--enable-gpgme \
--enable-notmuch \
--with-gss=/usr \
--with-ssl=/usr \
--with-sasl=/usr \
--with-idn=/usr \

With optional --enable-lua

Hi Alad,

I've just added you as co-maintainer, thanks! I'm personally using neomutt from community so not really invested in keeping this up-to-date anymore.


Alad commented on 2017-10-24 08:27

Hi shioyama,

besides the below comment on mime.types, this package no longer conflicts with mutt since upstream changed all references to "neomutt". It does however conflict with neomutt in community.

I'm happy to (co)maintain this package if you don't have the time to make the necessary changes.

Building NeoMutt 20171006-5-c1eb1e today failed with

Commenting out line 61 in the PKGBUILD

60 # Cruft we don't want.
61 # rm "${pkgdir}"/etc/mime.types{,.dist}

fixed this issue and Neomutt is packaged just fine.

Thanks for providing this package.
