Contributing To Debian Science
Services for developers
Public IRC channel: #debian-science on irc.debian.org (OFTC)
Since there are many different specialties in Science, we tried to separate package into specialties. By default, packages goes into Debian Science.
Please note that chemistry/biochemistry and medical free software are already handled by two other Debian projects:
Debian Med: Medicine, pre-clinical research, and life science (see the list of actively maintained biological packages from Debian Med team)
Git version control system for Debian Science
We have also a GIT service hosted here: https://salsa.debian.org/science-team
The group-policy is online at https://science-team.pages.debian.net/policy/.
Its source is stored in a git repository:
$ git clone https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/policy.git or $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:science-team/policy.git $ make (Needs xmlto)
The draft of the policy will then be built to debian-science-policy.html.
If you make changes, push them back to this repository.
