Hi,

the package django-hstore v1.1.1 listed on pypi is outdated.

The github repository listed on pypi - https://github.com/aino/django-hstore - has not been updated since 2 years, and the owner has not answered nor to pull requests, tickets or emails.

The new repository is this one: https://github.com/djangonauts/django-hstore
As you can see the new repo has 3x times the number of commits, 2x the number of contributors and 5x times followers.

The new repo is managed by more people and there is a mailing list for anyone that wants to collaborate or ask for support listed in the README.

For all these reasons, and because the package is used by many people, we "djangonauts" kindly ask to become the new mantainers of the django-hstore package.

Thanks

  • Clarification:

    to be precise, https://github.com/djangonauts/django-hstore is not a new repository. It's the original repository by the original author of the package, which agreed to move it to djangonauts organization and let other people mantain it.

    Hi, sorry for the delay.

    The owner of the pypi project django-hstore is able to assign new users as owners of the project in pypi. I prefer if users handle that sort of thing - then I don't have to worry about permission granting messiness. If the original owner is not answering email then I can do it, I just prefer not to.

     
  • Thank you for the reply. I understand. I got in touch with Mikko Heising and he is keen on collaborating. Will let you know next week and close the issue if we solve it.

  • The original author added me as owner.
