Getting packages into Debian BoF

Debexpo, sponsorship-requests, debian-mentors, ITPs, and more

This talk will begin by summarizing the current state of things, and then open up to a BoF where attendees can discuss the current state and what changes ought to be made.

Getting packages into Debian BoF
Debexpo, sponsorship-requests, debian-mentors, ITPs and more

The past year has seen a lot of changes to how we handle the newest package maintainers in Debian. We not only have new software at mentors.debian.net, and a new process for handling sponsorship requests but also several lengthy discussions on which packages belong into Debian and what the implications of sponsored maintainer and DMs are. This talk will begin by summarizing the current state of things (15 minutes), and then open up to a BoF where attendees can discuss the current state and what changes ought to be made.

Topics covered:

  • Handling sponsoring requests as Debian bug reports
  • mentors.debian.net: past, present and future
  • Which packages belong in Debian? How do/should we respond to ITPs
