#foss/#linux etiquette question:
A package I use in a rolling-release distro is several versions behind upstream and I'd like to see it updated. The repo lists the maintainer's email address.
Is it appropriate to email the maintainer directly, or are there more official distro channels I should go through?
(I'm running into this issue on #void, but I'd imagine it would come up in other rolling distros)
@codesections A better way to go about this would to find wherever the package's version control is and file a ticket there, if that's a thing with Void
