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.

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.
