Nagios Plugin Team Changes

The Nagios Plugin team is undergoing some changes, including the introduction of a new maintainer. The www.nagios-plugins.org website will remain the official location of the Nagios Plugins, and development of the plugins will continue on github at https://github.com/nagios-plugins.

Changes are being made to the team as the result of unethical behavior of the previous maintainer Holger Weiss. Weiss had repeatedly ignored our requests to make minor changes to the plugins website to reflect their relation to Nagios, rather than unrelated projects and companies. After failing to acknowledge our reasonable requests, we updated the website to reflect the changes we had requested. Rather than contacting us regarding the change, Weiss decided to embark on a vitriolic path of attacking Nagios and spreading mistruths about what had happened.

We believe that this type of unethical behavior is not beneficial for the Nagios community nor is it in keeping with the high standards people have come to rely on from Nagios. Thus, we have decided to find a new maintainer for the plugins. A new maintainer has already stepped forward and will be announced shortly.

We would like to thank all current and past plugin developers for their contributions and welcome anyone new who is interested in contributing to the project moving forward.
