The following plugins fail to build against the current nightly:
If they don’t receive fixes I’m proposing remove them from nightly so we don’t branch broken plugins into 1.18.
Another plugin that does build but I’d like to retire is
foreman_snapshot. @Gwmngilfen has indicated he has no problems with this.
It would be a shame to lose foreman_chef -
@Marek_Hulan is it very badly broken?
it’s not that bad, I’ll try to find some time next week to restore the compatibility, is there a deadline for removal?
If we’re looking for new maintainers, I’d be happy to help promote that…

I’d love to see ABRT not to die, but I have no time available. Please promote.

I don’t have an exact deadline since I don’t know when the packaging branching is planned. I think that’s supposed to be “soon”. Note that since it’s all plugins, they can be reintroduced async from the release.
Finding more maintainers is always a good thing though.
Would be happy to lend any help, resources I can towards the chef and salt plugins.
Thank! If you have time, there are things that would help:
confirming / reproducing bugs on the plugin Redmine projects
reviewing and / or testing Pull Requests to those plugins
writing fixes for bugs and / or plugin docs as Pull Requests
These are roughly least-to-most difficult, but it depends on your skill set
On mobile right now, can get links for the above or anything else you need to get started later on.

Chef has been updated a while back but for abrt and azure nobody has stepped up so I’ve created. Unless they are revived they will not be part of 1.19.
