Description Andrew Hamilton 2013-01-21 03:11:38 UTC
targetcli is used for managing the new SCSI target subsystem in the kernel.  I've copied the -9999 ebuild into a snapshot ebuild since upstream rarely tags releases (last tagged release is well over a year old).

Reproducible: Always

targetcli snapshot ebuild

ebuild SRC_URI references a snapshot I created that can be used by the maintainers as desired.

Well Jeroen,

Alexey hasn't been acting or reacting on any ticket since years.
See for instance bug #562284.
Why is he still listed as maintainer for this package?

Andrew's initiative was a very good one.
It is weird that there only is an unstable 9999-ebuild for
such an essential and critical subsystem like targetcli.

(yes, this a booster comment)
Comment 3 Alexey Shvetsov gentoo-dev 2016-03-28 19:11:45 UTC
I dont react since i didnt use it for few years. So this packages should be listed as maintainer needed
Comment 4 toon 2016-04-16 10:15:58 UTC
Hi Alexey, thanks for reaction.  Much appreciated!
So this clarifies the silence.
What is the procedure to list this package as 'maintainer needed'?
