Adopt a SDL package
Packaging with git
There's no document dedicated for SDL team, yet. The best way is to read git doc from perl team, forget about dh-make-perl in there and think "sdl" when you read "perl".
Set up mr
mr tool let your clone all sdl git repositories at once.
To configure mr, you need 2 configuration files:
$ cat ~/.mrconfig [/path/to/your/sdl-stuff/git] chain = true checkout = git clone ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-sdl/meta.git git $ cat ~/.mrtrust /path/to/your/sdl-stuff/git/.mrconfig
To retrieve all repos, do:
$ cd /path/to/your/sdl-stuff/ $ mr up # retrieve meta repo in git $ mr up # retrieve all sdl packages
Note that the first mr up will fail if an empty git directory exists.

- frozen-bubble: ready upstream as version 2.2.1-beta1
- dizzy: ready to be packaged once libsdl-perl is available
- pangzero: original upstream author is unresponsive. perl-sdl upstream is working on it.

If you have no other dedicated place to document stuff concerning your team, then use this place. You can put documentation (with warnings and infos), FAQ, TODO list (see "Get Involved" above) , ideas () etc.
You can use ?Subpages to structure the content if you have many things to document here.
