= Packages maintained by the Debian Multimedia Team =

Here you can find a list of packages maintained by the Debian Multimedia Team:

http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-multimedia@lists.debian.org

http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org

New packages should set the Maintainer field to {{{Debian Multimedia Maintainers <pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>}}}. Existing packages should move to using that address on a best-effort basis.

All source packages shoud use the [[http://git.debian.org/git/pkg-multimedia/|pkg-multimedia git area]] in alioth.

The A/!DeMuDi project needs help to create new Debian packages and maintain the existing ones. If you want to contribute to this effort, but you are new to the Debian packaging systems, here follows some information to get you started. The Debian Multimedia Maintainers need help to create new Debian packages and maintain the existing ones. If you want to contribute to this effort, but you are new to the Debian packaging systems, here follows some information to get you started.

== Packaging guidelines ==
  * Packages should use git, as mentioned above. Desirable is being able to use git-buildpackage.
  * Upstream sources should be kept in the ''upstream'' branch and the the debian packaging in the ''master'' branch.
  * Quilt should be used for patch management, and the ''master'' branch should only differ from the ''upstream'' branch in files inside the debian/ directory. This means no direct changes to the source in the master branch.
  * The maintainer field should be set to {{{Debian Multimedia Maintainers <pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>}}}
  * The git repository should be hosted in alioth, under the pkg-multimedia project. It should forward commit messages to {{{pkg-multimedia-commits@lists.alioth.debian.org}}} and ''package''{{{_cvs@packages.qa.debian.org}}}
   * You can use the setup-repository script in /git/pkg-multimedia to create the bare repository with commit messages enabled. The repository should be named as the source package name for the message forwarding to work (eg, the repository for source package liblo is named liblo.git).
  * The control file should use the Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser tags.

''The table below could be better managed through BTS's user tags. This would allow syncing this info with the current one in BTS without duplicated work. This page is currently generated using a semi-automated process. I have separated the packages into two lists - the first is a prioritised list of Debian packages which require help or adoption, the second is packages that have not made it into Debian.''

Packages maintained by the Debian Multimedia Team

Here you can find a list of packages maintained by the Debian Multimedia Team:

http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-multimedia@lists.debian.org

http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org

New packages should set the Maintainer field to Debian Multimedia Maintainers <pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>. Existing packages should move to using that address on a best-effort basis.

All source packages shoud use the pkg-multimedia git area in alioth.

How to help with packaging

The Debian Multimedia Maintainers need help to create new Debian packages and maintain the existing ones. If you want to contribute to this effort, but you are new to the Debian packaging systems, here follows some information to get you started.

Packaging guidelines

  • Packages should use git, as mentioned above. Desirable is being able to use git-buildpackage.
  • Upstream sources should be kept in the upstream branch and the the debian packaging in the master branch.

  • Quilt should be used for patch management, and the master branch should only differ from the upstream branch in files inside the debian/ directory. This means no direct changes to the source in the master branch.

  • The maintainer field should be set to Debian Multimedia Maintainers <pkg-multimedia-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>

  • The git repository should be hosted in alioth, under the pkg-multimedia project. It should forward commit messages to pkg-multimedia-commits@lists.alioth.debian.org and package_cvs@packages.qa.debian.org

    • You can use the setup-repository script in /git/pkg-multimedia to create the bare repository with commit messages enabled. The repository should be named as the source package name for the message forwarding to work (eg, the repository for source package liblo is named liblo.git).
  • The control file should use the Vcs-Git and Vcs-Browser tags.

Documentation

Lists of packages and applications

Key to status column

  • O - The package has been ‘Orphaned’. It needs a new maintainer as soon as possible. If the package has a Priority higher or equal to standard, the severity should be set to important.

  • RFA - This is a ‘Request for Adoption’. Due to lack of time, resources, interest or something similar, the current maintainer is asking for someone else to maintain this package. They will maintain it in the meantime, but perhaps not in the best possible way. In short: the package needs a new maintainer.

  • RFH - This is a ‘Request For Help’. The current maintainer wants to continue to maintain this package, but they need some help to do this, because their time is limited or the package is quite big and needs several maintainers.

  • ITP - This is an ‘Intent To Package’. Please submit a package description along with copyright and URL in such a report.

  • RFP - This is a ‘Request For Package’. Someone has found an interesting piece of software and would like someone else to maintain it for Debian. Please submit a package description along with copyright and URL in such a report.

  • not in WNPP - That's because you haven't submitted an RFP for it yet (see above).

Audio and multimedia applications which need help

The table below could be better managed through BTS's user tags. This would allow syncing this info with the current one in BTS without duplicated work. This page is currently generated using a semi-automated process. I have separated the packages into two lists - the first is a prioritised list of Debian packages which require help or adoption, the second is packages that have not made it into Debian.
