How to help with packaging

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.


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
