The Alpine Linux community may soon face having few packages in its repositories or need to find a few new package maintainers. Phoronix is reporting one of the more active package maintainers in the Alpine community is stepping down. "Alice "psykose" who is easily responsible for the highest number of commits per author over the past year has decided to step down from maintaining her packages. These Alpine aports stats put her at 13,894 commits over the past year. In comparison, the second most prolific packager saw just 2,053 commits... Or put another way, psykose has 6.7x the number of commits as the next packager. The 13.8k commits is also about half of the 26.8k commits seen in total over the past year.
Over the weekend I was alerted to the fact that psykose/nekopsykose has begun dropping maintainership of packages she maintained. All of her recent alpinelinux/aports commits two days ago were removing packages she oversaw. Curious about the situation, I reached out to Alice and she confirmed she has dropped maintenance of anything she maintained and proceeded to lock herself out of the Alpine Linux systems she had access to."
