Status of GNOME in Debian: http://www.0d.be/debian/debian-gnome-3.22-status.html
The goal of the team is to provide high quality packages of the whole GNOME desktop environment for Debian.
- Help us convert remaining modules from cdbs to dh
- Drop --disable-silent-rules from debian/rules, this is now handled by dh via DH_QUIET environment variable.
Port applications away from deprecated vte (to vte3) (deprecated vte will be targeted for removal during Buster development window)
Port applications away from gksu (Running the entire GUI application is not recommended! Better to have a split out privilegied helper that gains privilegies via policykit)
Port an application using any deprecated library (this list includes several of the above links)
Get involved in general
Help us with bug triage. Have a look at the QA page, find a package with a lot of bugs, and sort them out.
Package new versions or fix bugs, and commit these into our Subversion repository.
We have some challenging ideas that require coding or integrating complex modifications on GNOME software. Please come discuss on IRC if you feel like implementing something.
