Orphaned or Idle project page: "Underdog"
|Reported by:||ibitobear||Owned by:||ctsai|
Howdy, I am writing a project called underdog.
Someone has claimed the project name underdog but the project page is empty and has been so for more than a year.
Is there a resolution process that would let me claim that fallow project page?
My reason for the name "underdog": I am writing an early user context /init which sets up the system normall but then, instead of moving root into place and execing /init again, it calls clone() to create a different process and mount namespace and manhandles the system from there to bring up the real system init.
The value of this is that the system init can later exit, returning control to underdog, which can then clean up the root context fully. This is needed to detach some forms of advanced and multi-path root devices (like iSCSI initiators) cleanly.
It is underdog because it runs under init, and (in colloquial American English) it "dogs" init till it dies. 8-)
I could pick another name of course, but it seems a waste since this one seems to just be squatted on right now.
