I asked in #archlinux about any TUs willing to help and got some non-optimistic replies:
jelle zyga-suse: I know you told me that yesterday
snap is however something I wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole
According to the rules https://aur.archlinux.org/trusted-user/TUbylaws.html
Special Removal of an Inactive TU
A TU who has not done ANY of the following for a period of at least 2 months:
- added, removed or updated a package in [community] or the AUR
- performed any action that required TU privileges on the AUR>
- posted a message to aur-general
OR who has not voted in a consecutive series of voting periods, the starting dates of which span 2 months or more, shall be brought up for special removal due to inactivity.
In this special case, the motion may be made by one TU instead of two, and SVP is followed by a discussion period of 3 days, a quorum of 66%, and a voting period of 5 days.
The current maintainer of snapd is close to being inactive. Still this requires a motion to remove him and another motion to do something with individual packages. I honestly believe Timothy is just busy and is still acting in good faith. As far as I know there’s no way to transfer a package from one TU to another.
