#42800 Abandoned project takeover: aiksaurus

No

We have been maintaining/developing aiksaurus in
AbiWord's CVS repository and have discussed taking over
official maintenance. I would like to be able to
release files/sources/binaries/etc. and the aiksaurus
project site on SourceForge is the best place to do this.

I am unable to contact Jared Aiken who wrote aiksaurus,
and unfortunately he is the sole admin on the aiksaurus
project. I would be grateful if you could add me as an
admin.

Regards, Frank

    Greetings,

    This canned response is used by the SourceForge.net team to
    convey information about how this Support Request will be
    handled. Please read the entirety of this comment before taking
    any further action; information enclosed in this comment will
    help you to ensure that you have an excellent support experience.

    The SourceForge.net team takes all reported issues seriously; we
    will work to provide you a complete, accurate, and timely
    response to your inquiry. Information about our support policies
    and procedures may be found at:
    https://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=11230&group_id=1

    ABOUT THIS ISSUE: Based on the initial review of this request, we
    have determined that this issue will be considered to have Low
    Priority (this is signified by the summary line we use on this
    request, not by the Priority setting on this request). Issues
    within this category typically include requests for the take-over
    of projects not under active development, take-over of projects
    whose names are taken (due to prior rejection/removal) or
    reserved, and take-over of projects whose administrators are
    inactive and unreachable. A description of this class of issues
    may be found at:
    https://sourceforge.net/docman/display_doc.php?docid=11230&group_id=1#issueclass_low

    TRIAGE PROCESS: The initial review of this issue has resulted in
    a member of the SourceForge.net staff determining who should
    process this issue, and a change in the Priority, Summary,
    Assignee, Group and Category settings for this request. We use
    these settings solely for grouping purposes; as the submitter,
    you SHOULD NOT change any of these settings. Since we use all of
    these settings to group issues for faster response, you should
    understand that changing any of these settings (particularly the
    listed Priority setting) will result in significant delays in the
    processing of your request.

    WHAT TO EXPECT: Issues of this nature will typically be reviewed
    again by the assigned member of the SourceForge.net team within 5
    business days (the SourceForge.net team works at least Monday
    through Friday, 9am to 5pm Pacific, excepting holidays). This
    class of issues is considered to be of low priority due to the
    turnaround time involved in processing these types of requests.
    Our typical process is to attempt to contact the current
    designated administrator (if appropriate) after ensuring we have
    enough information to process your request. Total time for
    response to this type of inquiry, processing of the request and
    request closure is typically three weeks from time of submission
    (though may be much faster, depending on the circumstances).

    INQUIRING ABOUT THE STATUS OF THIS ISSUE: Should you have
    questions or concerns regarding the status of this issue, simply
    add a comment to this support request. All comments you post to
    this support request will be received by the SourceForge.net team
    member who has been assigned this issue. Please do not submit a
    second support request about this issue (add a comment to this
    request instead), and do not attempt to contact the assignee of
    this request via email; all additional information or comments
    about this request should be posted as a comment to this request.

    Thank you,

    SourceForge.net support

    Aiksaurus is a set of libraries and applications which
    provide a thesaurus (currently English only, based on
    Guttenburg's Moby thesaurus) using native GUI on several
    platforms: UNIX (GTK+ & Qt), Win32 & MacOSX (Cocoa). The
    core library itself is platform-independent. The principal
    language is C++, with some use of Cocoa/ObjC++; wrappers are
    provided for C and Cocoa/ObjC.

    Aiksausus plugins exist for AbiWord on UNIX and Win32; the
    library is also used by Lyx; and the new Cocoa port provides
    a MacOSX NSService hook so that Safari and other such
    applications can use this thesaurus without
    Aiksaurus-specific development.

    The source code is licensed under the GNU General Public
    License (GPL); see aiksaurus/core/COPYING.

    Please note: I do not wish to take over from Jared Aiken, I
    merely wish to stand in for him until he returns from
    wherever he is. I want to be able to make new releases and
    create a website and this is the obvious place to do it.

    Screen shot & preview of the new Cocoa port can be found on
    my website: http://www.crazy-wormhole.com/

    Thanks, Frank
