Mentor: ObeyArthurLiu (add yourself here if you're proposing yourself as a mentor, add a team if relevant)
Summary: investigate exotic ports of Debian, create and improve tools and practices for these types of porting
- Familiarity with consumer hardware reverse engineering
- Familiarity with one or more Debian porting efforts outside of Debian
Description: all kinds of crazy Debian ports have sprouted up from outside of the Debian community: Windows Mobile phones, Android phones, WebOS phones, PS3, Dreamcast... Your job is to identify them, start the work on bringing them closer to Debian porting practices and create and improve tools for exotic porting.
