Debian Rakudo (Raku) Group

Task description

These are our goals:

We want to package the Rakudo implementation of Raku (formerly Perl6) and the growing list of Raku modules on Debian.

Similarly to the Debian Perl Group, we aim to:

  • Adopt orphaned Raku module packages.
  • Handle the RFP (Request For Package) of Raku modules.
  • Help with bugs in Raku packages.
  • Keep Raku packages in the Debian archive as up-to-date as possible.



Debian Rakudo is split into three subprojects:

Interacting with the team

  • Email: <pkg-rakudo-devel AT lists DOT debian DOT org>

The following link are up-to-date information on Raku packaging:

  • dh-make-raku Recommended tool to create Debian package for Raku modules.

The following links to the Debian Perl Group pages and are relevant background information, however aren't 100% related to the Rakudo packaging effort.

How to get involved

You are considering to join the Debian Rakudo Group or were just added to the group on Alioth? Then the Debian Perl Group Welcome page (english, español) should help you with your decision and your first steps.

Please see our ToDo List for ideas on what to do.

Here's the short version for those only interested in the technical details:

A good way to get involved is to introduce yourself on the mailing list. A simple email about yourself saying what your goals are, how you might like to contribute, and what you would like to get from the group is the standard introduction protocol. It does not have to be formal of course. Here is an example: example introduction email

Technically speaking, you need to create an account on https://salsa.debian.org/ and include your account name in the introductory mail to <pkg-rakudo-devel AT lists DOT debian DOT org>; one of the project admins will add you to the group.

After that it is simply a matter of finding modules or packages that you use or are interested in. Follow the guide for git (link above) and you are off and running!

Debian developers can join easily. Simply drop your Raku module package (see the Git guide) and mail a note to the group. All Debian developers already have commit access. Remember to check the sources back in to avoid a fork :)
