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. Lintian tag for addons not using dh-elpa (mainly to deter against any new ones being uploaded) 867042

  2. MBF against addons not using dh-elpa
  3. Preparing and submitting proposed NMUdiffs for addons not using dh-elpa, making them use dh-elpa (our team's release goal for buster)
  4. Steps towards an RM bug for emacs24.

  5. dh-make-elpa subcommand to automatically transition a package to use dh-elpa
