Nmap snap update


#1

I’ve the nmap snap installed, but it has not been updated in a long time:
https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~joetalbott/nmap-ubuntu-core/trunk/view/head:/snapcraft.yaml

Does anybody knows if the maintainer is around here?


#2

The snap site on snapcraft.io should have a “contact this developer” link:


#3

For joe.talbott@canonical.com:

550 5.1.1 <joe.talbott@canonical.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table


#4

What should the process to take over the nmap snap name to maintain it be?


#5

Refer: Registering your app name


#6

@evan, the nmap snap was created by a canonical employee (Joe Talbott) but their email is black holed. Have they left the company and therefore unable or unwilling to maintain this snap? In which case @reviewers, what’s the process for transferring dead snap names to a more willing maintainer?


#7

Thanks @daniel! Do you know if is there anyone that we can ping for this?
