Hi all,

So Jeremy Bicha kindly contacted me the other day to express concern
with Budgie/GNOME Screensaver. I had been toying with the notion of
forking GNOME Screensaver due to its deadness, and making it work
better for Budgie/Modern GNOME integration.

Jeremy correctly pointed out it might be worth maintaining the
project instead, which I'm up for.

You should really rename it. The gnome-screensaver product in Bugzilla
is closed, so that screensaver related bugs don't end up there even
though we (GNOME) don't use it anymore.

gnome-flashback-screensaver, if gnome-flashback folks want to use it,
would be fine. Otherwise, a completely different name would be better.

Interesting. So up or down a fork is the only way to go here? If so
perhaps the burden on GNOME would be less if this was done externally,
given the project is entirely closed within GNOME now.

You can then rename pages like:
in the Wiki.

And you can see an example canned closure message, which we used after
triaging the bugs that might still affect GNOME:
