Agenda ideas

This meeting is intended to be both a discussion/brainstorming session, and a sprint.

Things to discuss

  1. Possible team or co-maintenance models for the packaging of GNU Emacs itself.
  2. Any work needed on emacsen-common infrastructure and policy?

Outstanding work to sprint

  1. Preparing NMUdiffs for addons not using dh-elpa

    • This is our team's release goal for buster
    • This includes figuring out breaking up emacs-goodies-el.
  2. It might be worth writing a dh-make-elpa subcommand to automatically transition a package to use dh-elpa
  3. Steps towards an RM bug for emacs24.

  4. Triage of bugs against emacs24 and/or emacs25
  5. Recent dh-elpa feature request: 869509



The sprint has been possible thanks to:
