Debian Perl Group - Open tasks

This page collects ideas for tasks within the ["Teams/DebianPerlGroup"]. These tasks can be worked on at DebCamp or might be tackled by volunteers "at home".

Policy

List of issues that affect our work mode and need discussion.

  • build systems ("one debian/rules fits them all"? or "perl_helper" or "dh7")

  • patch systems (quilt vs. just using a RCS and having changes in .diff.gz)
  • related: source "Format: 3 (quilt)"?
  • RCS (svn vs. git)
  • developer versions from CPAN
  • debian/copyright: who has the copyright for debian/* (individuals or the group), and under which license?
  • Policy and tools version migrations: How should we face them? (i.e. auto-bumping up standards versions? Upgrading DH? etc.)
  • Adopting packages: Is it better to repackage if packages are reasonably standard?

Packages

List of tasks that need to be performed on all/many of our packages.

  • dpkg-shlibdeps: warnings about linking to unused libs
  • bug triaging/fixing
  • new upstream versions (ongoing ...)
  • watch files (change to /dist/)
  • use dh_lintian (debhelper >= 6.0.9) for installing our few lintian overrides

  • depending on Policy above: dpatch->quilt or dpatch/quilt->RCS or source format 3

  • changing debian/copyright to the machine-readable format
  • changes due to Debian Policy 3.8.0 (build options, README.source, ...)

Others

Topics that don't fit in the above categories.

  • DebianQA scripts
    • add support for a mail "bot" that registers mails from dak and adds the "processed", "accepted", "rejected" mail to the shown information
  • prepare Tincho's talk for DebConf8 :)
