database all the maintainers that maintain at least one EL branch. I'll

Toshio kindly answered me. Currently there is no url that can be used
for that, but he did a simple script to get that information.

The script is here:
http://toshio.fedorapeople.org/pkgdb/id_to_owner.py

The result is here:
http://toshio.fedorapeople.org/pkgdb/epel-owner.txt
/me takes a quick look.

The list contains corsepiu, which according to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/ContributorStatusNo
doesn't want to be a EPEL Contributer and according to
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/bugzilla?tg_format=plain
is not maintaining any packages in EPEL directly. Maybe he's co-maintainer
somewhere to make sure he sees commits, but the script did not catch that.

And note, http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/ContributorStatusNo IMHO
definitely should stay to give people a chance to say "Please don't bug me
with EPEL at all (not even mails asking if I want to maintain the package)"
The page IMHO best stays separately and is not merged into
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/ContributorStatus, as that makes using
the page contents in scripts a lot easier.


I think it would be better to see if we can get this into FAS and have
a link into FAS to show that datapoint.

 Having a page that people may or may not know about and may or may
not have changed their minds about is not helpful.
100% agree here. I for one have completely forgotten about the StatusYes/No pages. Hopefully no one cursed me so far because of my mails...
