I am looking for users interested to act as meta-ros maintainer.
Within the last few months, various users have been contributing additions to the meta-ros layer and I would be happy to share the maintainer role with another person to have a second opinion on pull requests, and to take care when I am not immediately available.
If you have doubt that you are the right person to be a meta-ros maintainer, consider these questions:
- Do you continuously use the master branch of meta-ros?
- Does current project work foresees that you will using meta-ros for the next few months or next year?
- Do you have a basic understanding of bitbake recipes and know how to write them?
- Do you have some spare time for maintainer activities?
If you answer most of those questions with yes, please consider to volunteer as meta-ros maintainer. Note that the amount or size of your past contribution to meta-ros is not so important for being a maintainer.
The main (minimal) activity would be to review and test pull requests together with me, to answer questions on the OpenEmbedded discourse.ros.org topic, and to take care of the issue tracker (adding observed issues, removing duplicates, etc.). This minimal activity usually only takes roughly one hour per week.
Of course, as part of maintaining meta-ros, you can do more and ensure it works with the current master and the Yocto Project releases, help new users to get started with meta-ros, or get more involved in current improvements of the meta-ros layer.
If you are interested to help out, please post it here or send me an email and I can grant you full maintainer access to the current meta-ros repository.
