would you have a time to talk to me perhaps on Friday afternoon after
Could it be https://meet.opensuse.org/lkocman
Friday 18:30 CEST?
Everyone is welcome to join.
I can discuss with you some upcomming changes that I think could be
related and we can talk about some next steps that would be best to
make it happen.

This is my first post to this mailing list so I hope I won't

I noticed there is no systematic monitoring of the "maintenance
of openSUSE packages, i.e.. no way for a potentially interested
maintainer to check whether this or that package is in need of extra
help, or whether everything is fine. This means that it's difficult
someone willing to volunteer to appreciate the "health" of packages
far as maintenance is concerned. Of course users can see commits
timelines and failed builds, but they have to try and *infer* how
wanted their help is when instead they could simply *read* this
Also as far as I know there is no systematic monitoring of the number
of users for a given package in home repositories. This means that
maintainers might not always be aware that their package need to be
registered against official repositories.
Now a simple web service (implemented as new feature to software-o-o,
for instance, but not necessarily) could bring closer end-users and
maintainers, improving the visibility of packages that need more
maintainers and providing direct feedback to maintainers so as to
motivate them to port their packages onto the main openSUSE
Do other people find that such a service would be useful? If people
find the idea worth realizing, who should I get in touch with to make
