This page lists Matrix-related software, and their status in Debian. Please feel free to package any of the software listed on this page that hasn't already been packaged or ITPed!


Packaging team uses Salsa with a mailing list.

Discussion about Matrix packaging takes place in #debian-matrix:matrix.org (logs).

Some useful notes will be on in official blog. If you are subscribed to Planet Debian you will see them there.

You may find some useful information about using of Salsa for packaging of software in the Debian Science Policy Manual. All rules about level of access, creation of git repositories and such like are similar in both teams. Just have in mind the specifics of our team (another group on Salsa, another mailing list, etc.).
