[Haskell-cafe] Maintainership of 3 packages on Hackage by Adjoint Inc

Hi Ivan,

Stephen Diehl (https://github.com/sdiehl) has been very helpful in the past
with these packages. I haven't seen any activity from other Adjoint members
in a while. Maye Stephen is on this list and can help.

As an aside, are you using these libraries for research purposes or in the
wild? I'm interested in their suitability for non-research purposes or if
something like blst (https://github.com/supranational/blst) with a Haskell
FFI wrapper is more suitable/secure.

> Hello,
> I am a Haskell software developer and I use some packages maintained by
> Adjoint Inc from Hackage. Specifically, I am interested in 3 packages:
> • elliptic-curve <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/elliptic-curve>
> • pairing <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/pairing>
> • galois-field <https://hackage.haskell.org/package/galois-field>
> Latest versions of these packages have upper bound restrictions on their
> dependencies which do not allow to build them with latest versions
> available on Hackage. For two packages these restrictions are already
> updated in the source repos on GitHub, they just need to be updated on
> Hackage. For the third one I opened a PR
> <https://github.com/adjoint-io/galois-field/pull/32> on GitHub.
> I opened an issue
> <https://github.com/adjoint-io/elliptic-curve/issues/21> about updating
> elliptic-curve and commented
> <https://github.com/adjoint-io/pairing/issues/21> another one about
> pairing. Unfortunately, both issues were closed even though Hackage
> versions were not updated. My PR wasn't closed, but apparently I was
> banned or something because now I can't write comments there.
> Since I was unable to get any information on GitHub, I tried to contact
> the maintainer by email (info at adjoint.io) written in the "maintainer"
> field in all 3 packages, saying that I can make all the updated myself
> if they give me permission. Unfortunately, this email address doesn't
> seem to work because I got "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" in
> response.
> So it looks like these packages are effectively unmaintained, but
> require some maintenance. I found the "Taking over a package
> <https://wiki.haskell.org/Taking_over_a_package>" page which is exactly
> about my case. I think I am in the situation where I cannot contact the
> author/maintainer, that's why I am writing to Haskell Cafe. I can't CC
> the maintainer (info at adjoint.io) because the address simply doesn't
> exist. If anybody on the mailing list can reach out to Adjoint, please
> do that, I'll be very thankful.
> Best,
