Help with mypaint package

Hi everyone

I found that package "mypaint" is almost abandoned. Upstream has released
several new stable versions. There are open tickets on bugzilla, which hang
without attention (one is almost two years old):

<a href="" title=""></a>
<a href="" title=""></a>
<a href="" title=""></a>

Right now I have fork with updated upstream, and fixed these issues.
<a href="" title=""></a>
I'm polishing it and doing testing, and hope will open another bugzilla
ticket with patch soon.

I'm writing this message to contact Christoph and propose my help
maintaining the package, and if he is not going to continue to package new
versions of the mypaint, I can take over it.

Hi Sergey,

thanks for reaching out to me and offering your help with mypaint. I
am sorry for not responding to your bugs.

I have to admit that I'm pretty much AWOL. I am no longer using
Fedora, thus I shouldn't maintain any packages. I already managed to
find new maintainers for many of my packages, but there are still
plenty up for grabs.

I really appreciate your help. I have given the package to you. Feel
free to downgrade me from 'admin' to 'commit' (I might return to
packaging at some point, who knows?)

I also reassigned the four open bugs to you. If necessary (?), file a
ticket at <a href="" title=""></a> to become
default assignee (don't know if this happens automatically).

Best regards,

Thanks Christoph, I will proceed with fixes and prepare release then.
