The dak system is located on administrator.skolelinux.no . After you logged in on a.s.n. you have to become the katie user. If you are a ftpmaster you can use the command "sudo -u katie bash" Now you are the debadmin user and have access to the archive system.

NEW Handling: One of the most important jobs of the ftpmaster is to handle the NEW queue. The NEW queue are packages which are signed by a Debian-Edu Developer and passed the key check. So you don't need to check if the signature is valid or not.

The ftpmaster's task is to check the package if it is ready for Debian-Edu or not. To get a checklist you can use the Debian-Edu Archive Policy and check if it passes all points.

First change into the directory /org/ftp.skolelinux.org/queue/new/ There you find the packages. After you have checked the package you have to run "lisa package_xxx-x_arch.changes"

Then you can type "c" and check some important points of the packages again. After you made your decision you can either accept or reject the package.

To accept it as it is (means no changes to maintainers suggestion for override) type "a" . Then the override file is changed. If you disagree to the maintainer and e.g. want to change the section field you can run "e". Then make your changes and the package is accepted.

If you want to reject the package type "r". Then you get a text editor (vim) and can describe the reason there. In case of rejection please use the following template form:

Hi Maintainer, ...
