Maintenance of text-icu (Bryan O'Sullivan)

Andreas Abel
Package text-icu (Bryan O'Sullivan) seems to be unmaintained since 2017

   https://github.com/haskell/text-icu/issues/30

with the last release in 2015

   https://hackage.haskell.org/package/text-icu-0.7.0.1

Unfortunately, the latest release is incompatible with ICU 68.

Has anyone heard from Bryan recently?  I mean, he is a Haskell
celebrity...  His last activity on github.com was in August 2017.

Anyone interested in maintaining this package?

Since Agda depends on text-icu, I could stand in as a temporary
maintainer to at least merge the most important pull requests, until
there is a new maintainer.

Best regards,
Andreas

If it turns out that Brian is no longer going be looking after the
project, or would be happy to share the burden, I'd be interested in
co-maintaining it.  I think it is generally best to have more than one
active maintainer for a mature package.

My interest in this space is largely via DNS and IDNA2008, where for my
own projects I'm maintaining a private fork of idna-hs (abandoned by its
original maintainer), which depends on text-icu via stringprep (though
perhaps only needed for IDNA2003, which should no longer be used).

Agreed.

The easiest would be that Bryan O'Sullivan, if he surfaces again, gives
us write access to his bos/text-icu repo on github (for the continuity
of issues/PRs---I don't think one can fork a repo including issues/PRs),
and upload rights on hackage.

RE: Maintenance of text-icu (Bryan O'Sullivan)

Haskell - Libraries mailing list
Bryan helpfully transferred ownership of

* attoparsec
* criterion
* statistics
* double-conversion
* math-functions
* aeson
* text-icu
* mwc-random
* wreq
* critbit
* text-format

Haskell.org (as a holding mechanism) on 8 Dec.  This was a holding mechanism while we figure out who the new maintainers should be.  Ben Gamari knows about this -- ask him. But I think Bryan is now out of the critical path.

Re: Maintenance of text-icu (Bryan O'Sullivan)

Andreas Abel
Thanks Simon, for the update!  (I hope it is nothing bad.)

@Ben: Could you set us up?
(And would that include write permissions on bos/text-icu or a new repo?)

Re: Maintenance of text-icu (Bryan O'Sullivan)

Viktor Dukhovni
I am not sure about the current status of text-icu?  What remains to be done
to get it revived?
