This meeting is intended to be both a discussion/brainstorming session, and a sprint.
Things to discuss
- Possible team or co-maintenance models for the packaging of GNU Emacs itself.
- Any work needed on emacsen-common infrastructure and policy?
Outstanding work to sprint
Preparing NMUdiffs for addons not using dh-elpa (if Lintian is still churning, can extract from /srv/lintian.debian.org/logs on lindsay.debian.org -- lintian.log is current state and a process actively checking packages will log to lintian.log-XXXXXX)
- This is our team's release goal for buster
- This includes figuring out breaking up emacs-goodies-el.
- It might be worth writing a dh-make-elpa subcommand to automatically transition a package to use dh-elpa
Steps towards an RM bug for emacs24.
- Triage of bugs against emacs24 and/or emacs25
Recent dh-elpa feature request: 869509
The sprint has been possible thanks to:
