Ayatana Packages for Debian

For what exactly Ayatana is, Ubuntu's wiki page may be helpful.

One suggestion from IRC: "it's a collection of projects to help applications provide a uniform presentation on the desktop", and apparently an amalgamation of useful bits of Ubuntu's Unity now that Unity's going away.

The Ayatana Project writes and packages software for Ubuntu. The Ayatana Packagers merge this software into Debian.

The current status of this effort is tracked under Ayatana/Packages.



pkg-ayatana uses Git as VCS.

Each package lives in its own Git repository (pkg-ayatana/<package>.git) which usually should contain only a master branch with the debian/ folder only. Alternatively, a git-buildpackage based package workflow is also possible / acceptible.
