Description Ralph Seichter 2020-05-12 14:32:59 UTC
Looking at orphaned packages today, I came across mail-filter/libsieve. I have considered stepping in as maintainer, but after some research I am wondering if it would be best to last-rite the package instead. Reasons:

* Gentoo's version 2.2.7 is outdated.

* The latest upstream[1] commit was made more than 8 years ago.

* There's an open QA notice[2] for the Gentoo package.

* mail-filter/libsieve has no reverse dependencies in the Gentoo tree.

This one is not correct.  net-mail/dbmail optionally depends on mail-filter/libsieve.

Interesting. I used "equery d mail-filter/libsieve" and got no match. How did you find the reverse dependency?

Don't rely on equery for this.  Gentoo keeps records of this to quickly look:  https://qa-reports.gentoo.org/output/genrdeps/rindex/mail-filter/libsieve

Thanks, Brian. I will remember that for future checks. Would it be OK to assign this issue to lordvan@g.o as the maintainer of dbmail, to ask for his opinion? Perhaps he would consider becoming the libsieve maintainer, what with dbmail apparently being the only remaining "consumer"?

CC'd as requested, but I make no promises
