Hi all,

So Jeremy Bicha kindly contacted me the other day to express
with Budgie/GNOME Screensaver. I had been toying with the notion
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
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
would be fine. Otherwise, a completely different name would be

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
given the project is entirely closed within GNOME now.

Not so much a fork as a name change. You can keep all the git history,
which will probably prove useful in the longer term. It would probably
be fine to keep it in the GNOME git as well.
