Primary ncurses maintainer

From: Juergen Pfeifer <>
Date: Thu, 05 Jun 1997 00:09:42 +0200

Summary of my position:

First and preferred option:

I'll take the role of the primary maintainer for ncurses under these

   - There is a public agreement from Eric and Zeyd
   - They transfer the copyright to me
   - I'll distribute ncurses BSD like (or under LGPL if that is
     what the community wants)
   - The decision will be made until June,13th
   - I'll take the job immediately after the decision. There is no
     "test phase" monitored by Eric, there is no way to revert the
     decision for Eric.
   - Someone provides write-access to a large enough ftp account

Second option:

One of the other (P. Seebach, F. LaRoche, J. Evans) becomes
the primary maintainer. This should be decided also until June, 13th.
Again there should be no "backdoor" to revert the decision.

Third option:

The situation with ncurses is not resolved until June,13th. In this
case I'll stop contributing to ncurses and participate in a new
project to get a free curses clone for the community. I'll then act
as a coordinator to get this project on the road, later on the question
who will maintain this project can be decided.
