How to Adopt Unmaintained Hacks

When owners of one of the hacks hosted on http://trac-hacks.org retires, the hack may be adopted by interested parties to maintain and further the hack for the Trac community. The standard procedure is:

  1. Open a ticket for the hack in question, ask about it's maintainership status on th-users mailing list and tell the audience that you'd be willing to take over maintainership. Then sit back and wait for at least two weeks, to see if the author of the hack replies.

  1. If the author replies, he/she decides how to proceed. He/she could deny your request, ask us to give you read/write permission for the hack in the repository, or even pass (maintainer|owner)ship to you.

  1. If the author does not reply, post the request to the th-users mailing list. The trac-hacks admins then grant commit-right to the repository.
