Initial idea to build a tool to help rubygems community to rotate maintainers for abandoned projects. Many new developers would like to maintain a project to learn new stuff and many good projects are abandoned by initial authors. So we need just to connect them.
Application build with rails should be able to grab data from github, bitbucket, rubyforge and rubygems and extract knowledge:
- Some project had last release long ago (e.g. 6 month)
- This project have a corresponding source with some active forks
After such extraction notification should be send as issue to all forks for original author and forks authors to connect and discuss possibility of merging upstream code to main repo, pick new or add new maintainer and make new release.
