I am willing to maintain the tool. I have great experiences with toolsforge technologies like webservices and mediawiki technologies like mediawiki-apis, abuse-filter. But I also want to say that i only have intermediate knowledge of nodejs and basic knowledge of reactjs. I can only work with limit to make sure tool is up and no serious bug. Thanks :)

Thanks @Jayprakash12345 for showing your interest to maintain the tool, We are glad to welcome you to be as a co-maintainer of VideoCutTool, We shall discuss about the project goals soon.

Thanks @Jayprakash12345 There is still a fair bit of work to do to get the tool working across the board. For example it does not handle large files currently.

Hi @Jayprakash12345 VideoCutTool workboard can be found here, Please feel free to assign yourself if you are planning to work on this tasks.

Yes as per the @Doc_James feedback some times VideoCutTool is failing for the larger videos, there is also a phab task for this ticket here as a high priority.

Feel free to discuss with me for any further quires.

Hi @Gopavasanth, I can only work on this tool after next month. Currently, I am busy to implementing user script for Indic communities.

@Gopavasanth thank you for your work implementing this nice tool!

To make sure @Jayprakash12345 have access to the tool, can you please add him as maintainer in
(or only the relevant project(s) - I didn't follow what project from the 3 need co-maintainer)

Before doing it, it is recommended to verify there are no "secrets" (your private data, your private passwords) in /data/project/video-cut-tool-front-end

@Gopavasanth Thank you, Happy New Year in advance \o/, will start work on the tool from new year :)

eranroz claimed this task.

Thanks! moving the task to resolved.

Also, Added @Jayprakash12345 as a collaborator/maintainer in both the code repos: VideoCutTool-front-end: and VideoCutTool-back-end

As @Jayprakash12345 is busy these days, We are looking for active co-maintainers for the tool's technical maintenance.

As you already made some good contributions to the tool so pinging @Crutishnyk, @IAmNetx if you are interested as a technical co-maintainer to the tool?

Thank you, @Gopavasanth, for the high trust level to me, but currently, I can't accept this rank because I am busy with my projects. Sorry for the rejection.

@Gopavasanth I am happy to a co-maintainer as I have worked with the tool in past few months and I have good experience with the stack it uses.

@Khr2003 Thank you! Yes your contributions to the tool were awesome and I believe and trust you to provide access to the tool, cloud where required :)

I had a call with @Khr2003 and added him to the project member in horizon with admin access.

@Gopavasanth: Does that mean this task should be resolved? Or is there more to do?

Hi @Aklapper, I would say to let this ticket be open if any other folks wants to take the project as a maintainer and make the good progress as currently its going a bit slow than the usual.
