On maintaining packages
Who is allowed to modify which packages
What to do if a maintainer is absent
- Help package maintainers save time by assisting in the bug work flow: mark duplicates, ask for more information from reporter and add trackers/blockers
- Guide Fedora EOL through HouseKeeping
- Rebase rawhide Bugzilla tickets during EOL (e.g. all bugs versioned rawhide become versioned to release X when it goes GA)
- Send emails to relevant mailing lists and add comments in Bugzilla to inform users of upcoming EOL, version change, etc
