@truocolo: I understand about dealing with IRL issue. No worries.

Yes, I had some heavy irl issues, I'm just now coming back to a computing platform. I haven't been able to access almost nothing for almost 6 months.

Watching the out-of-dates pile up, progressively losing maintainerships and seeing people getting mad without being able to do anything has very much felt like being eaten alive.

I am updating everything that has piled up as fast as I can, please don't get mad if it will take just a little more than it always has been, it's not exactly easy working as I am.

@truocolo: I noticed because there were new tags in the repo today (though 2.6.0 is still the stable version). I realized I had forgotten to answer your question here and noticed the package was still flagged out of date since August. I see you have 62 other packages that are flagged out of date as well...

it does feel so weird to get all these 'if you are not going to maintain it, orphan it' messages as of lately, as if I hadn't maintained this and other packages for years.

Do you want to co-maintain it?

Please don't take it personally but it does feel even weirder because of how nobody have seemed to notice I have disappeared for like six months or so.

The general vibe is like if I had died I would have kept receiving ever more harsh messages over time.

@tallero: Yes. See

If you're not going to maintain this, please orphan it.

@yochananmarqos it works at least on a dozen architectures. do you want me to write them all?

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-07-04 22:25 (UTC)

@tallero: The 2.1.3 tag no longer exists and 2.2.1 was just released. Are you planning on maintaining this or not?

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-07-01 15:46 (UTC)

@tallero: If it works on other architectures, then they should be specified.

@yochananmarqos you forgot the most likely in your citation. I needed the any to build on arm

This is not an 'any' package.

A Python package that contains C extensions using the ext_modules keyword in, is architecture-dependent.
