Maintaining Laravel notification channels - OneSignal

Last week, Freek Van Der Herten tweeted about seeking maintainers for a package on GitHub

Both @marcelpociot and I don’t have the time to maintain the onesignal package anymore.

We’re looking for someone who can take over the ropes.

Laravel Notification Channels are a group of packages related to interacting with external APIs in order to send messages or notifications via SMS, Web push, Chats... This one is dedicated to interact with OneSignal API.

I never maintained a package as huge as this one before. To be honest, I have a few repositories on GitHub and they all together adds zero downloads (excluding my own). But is something I always wanted to do. I mean, Open Source community gives us so much without expecting anything in return and we, most of the time, just install that package and use it. Sometimes we even blame the author when something doesn't work as expected, I did it once and now I feel terrible about it.

So I told Freek on that GitHub issue that I'll be glad to help with this and, to my luck, Lukas Kämmerling also wanted it to.

He is really helpful with this, he already used the package and understood at first glance the problems the users of the package was having. He also know about all that Open Source stuff and helps me to understand it.

I hope we can continue this maintenance and improving the package for a long time 🙂

Got any hints?
No, I'm afraid not.
However if you search within yourself, then...
Cut it out, ok?
I asked for a hint not the crazy philosophies of a Father Christmas look-a-like.
Heed my words, bold adventurer, and your path will lead to wisdom and..
There's just no reasoning with him...
I'm totally stuck as what to do.
I really wish I could help you but I'm just a clueless old fool.
Never a truer word was spoken.
Still clueless?
I'm afraid so.
Still look like a Father Christmas?
I'm afraid so.
