Looking for a new maintainer

Postby access2godzilla » Wed May 21, 2014 11:32 am

Due to personal reasons I will be no longer available for building Pale Moon for Linux. As unhappy as I am for not for not being able to continue for longer, I had to take this decision.

If anyone is interested in taking up the project then please contact me Moonchild via PM/email.

Here are some tips on how to compile Pale Moon. Isn't really that hard.

That was kind of unexpected...
Please keep me informed about any progress there, let the new maintainer contact me as well.
Please do not send me private messages for anything that could also be posted in the public boards.

Yeah, unfortunately it is; I received the news that caused this decision very recently. I wasn't really willing to stop maintaining pm4linux, but something that pays the bills gets greater priority.

Or maybe you could take it up :) As far as I can see, only setting up the environment is the large task. Rest of the things should be easy, at least until PM upgrades from v24.

Well, let me know how you set up your build environment, then. Which distro, which version, what build packages, etc. I'm sure I can whip up a VM the same way to maintain it if needed and there is nobody else. I just won't be able to provide much support since my agenda is already full ;)

EDIT: I just now realized you already posted build instructions. That should work as a guide ;)

I am most appreciative of your work, A2G. I have been using PM on my Mint install for several weeks now.

Good luck in all things in your future!

A2G,
Thanks for your work making PM available to Linux users. Your technical skills have amazed me and the loss of ongoing efforts will be sorely missed. Best of luck in whatever you do.
