Maintainers of Rails plugins

Hey guys,

  As you probably know Rails needs lot of help in some fronts and the
resources we have are just a few.
So besides calling for people to contribute to Rails itself, we are
asking for help to maintain most of the plugins we have on
https://github.com/rails

We made a call some days ago and these are the results.

Please take a look below and verify that everything is ok. I still
need some URLs to the repos and also that the owners give commit
access to the fellow maintainers.

And no body is interested in ...

request_profiler
render_component
deadlock_retry

Looks good to me Santiago. Thanks for organizing this effort.

Hi guys,

I've added Jason King (https://github.com/JasonKing) and Devdatta
(https://github.com/devdatta) to the exception_notification repository
(https://github.com/smartinez87/exception_notification)

Thanks Santiago for putting all this together.

Cheers,
Sebastian

I’ve forked 3 repos and add these people as a collaborator :wink:

https://github.com/sikachu/hide_action

https://github.com/sikachu/dynamic_form

https://github.com/sikachu/verification

Santago, can you make Joel Moss repository as the main one? He's
already maintaining it, why I've done nothing to it.

https://github.com/joelmoss/dynamic_form

The repo I use is actually at Codaset http://codaset.com/joelmoss/dynamic-form. The one on Codaest is not kept up to date, but the Codaset one is. thx

Doh! What I meant to say was “The one on Github is not kept up to date, but the Codaset one is.” :wink:

Joel,

  can we set https://github.com/joelmoss/dynamic_form as the official one?

Thanks.

I would prefer to use the one at Codaset, as that is what I use. If that’s a problem, please let me know.

Joel,

  Even though Codaset is awesome, the preferred way at the moment for
rails and the plugins we have "under ours scope" is github. So please
if we can use your github as the official repo for dynamic_form that
would be great.

Thanks and sorry about that.

Well of course Codaset is awesome! :wink:

Ok, no problem. I’ll update the Github repo.

All done and updated: https://github.com/joelmoss/dynamic_form

What do you want to do about the project on RubyGems.org. I control that too. Shall I keep it as it is and control releases myself?

Hehe Joel I can tell that is very cool yeah ;).
OK thanks :).

Joel, yes go ahead our suggestion is to give access too to the other
interested guys.
Thanks.

And who shall we issue pull requests to for the official repo at github/rails/dynamic_form?

Joel the idea is that the official repo for dynamic_form is now
https://github.com/joelmoss/dynamic_form with you, Prem Sichanugrist
and Devdatta as maintainers. I will update the rails/dynamic_form info
with a note saying that and pointing to yours.

Ah OK cool. Wasn’t sure about. thx

Santiago, I’ve just forked render_component and localization. Please count on me with them:

Hey Santiago,

And no body is interested in …
deadlock_retry

I recently forked (albeit, from another fork) and modified it to work with 2.3.11.

https://github.com/heaps/deadlock_retry

Regards
Kieran

Kieran,

you should probably take a look at my fork too

https://github.com/matthewrudy/pg_deadlock_retry

the error messages given by postgres are different

so the plugin doesnt work as it stands.

I imagine there are similar issues with other database that are not mysql.
