Interacting with the team
Read the docs first: http://www.debian.org/devel/website/
Request tracker: https://bugs.debian.org/www.debian.org
All work is shared in two teams:
- people in the debwww group - particular webmaster-only stuff
- people in the webwml group - everything reachable via webwml CVS
The webwml CVS/group does the bulk of the editing. The debwww Unix group handles the bits necessary for webwml to propagate onto the web site, CGI scripts, and similar intricate details.
You can request CVS commit access through the alioth project, please fill in the comment box with a reasoning.
