Debian Mentors are Debian Developers that are willing to upload packages to Debian repositories on behalf of the actual maintainer. The Debian Developer will also check the package for technical correctness and help the maintainer to improve the package if necessary. Mentors are also called sponsors.

The individuals listed below are available to sponsor and/or mentor packages in specific areas of Debian.

If you're a Debian member with upload rights, feel free to sign up and indicate in which areas you are willing to sponsor packages (or add additional categories). If you're unable to sponsor packages temporarily, just remove your name (or comment it out.)


The sponsors listed below are experienced in the following categories; if you want your package sponsored, you should consider talking to one of them in addition to using or #debian-mentors

If there are no sponsors listed below for the appropriate categories, take a look at the FAQ for how to get your packages sponsored via debian-mentors, teams or other means.

In addition to package sponsorship, there are one-on-one mentoring opportunities available.
