Maintaining a dormant plugin

Mez Pahlan
Hello everyone

I have recently been added as a maintainer of the HockeyApp plugin and note that it has been fairly dormant. My goals are to make the plugin pipeline compatible, refactor the project, and add additional unit tests. I have two questions for the community.

  1. I'm happy to review other contributor's PRs and merge them, however what should I do with my own? Ideally I would like another maintainer to review and approve them but judging by the activity over the past year I equally do not want to delay this for longer than needed.
    • I have already reached out the the existing team via email and this forum when requesting to become a maintainer. I have also reached out via the Github team.
  2. What is the etiquette for removing dormant maintainers from the project POM, the project team in Github, the wiki information, anywhere else?

I totally understand maintaining a plugin is hard work and people have lives so cannot commit to it 100% of their time. I'm just looking to do some housekeeping and make it easier for future maintainers to know whom to contact.

Hi Mez,
  1. You can ping @jenkinsci/code-reviewers in the PR
  2. Regarding old maintainers, we usually do not remove them unless there are conflicts or whatever. There is no common process on that
BR, Oleg

Hello Mez,

as stated on the other thread, I would be happy if you take over the maintenance of the plugin.
And please remove me from the maintainer list.
I already had a search for a new maintainer on the plugin wiki page, but somebody edited it out :(

regards,
Oliver
