Electronics packaging team

The pkg-electronics team collaborates on maintenance of electronics-related packages for Debian.

Discussion and co-ordination is mostly done on the <pkg-electronics-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org> mailing list. If you are not a member (yet?) of pkg-electronics, please feel free to ask any question related to packages in the Debian archive that is maybe related to pkg-electronics. Any suggestions or feedback about missing packages or package requests are welcome.

Team members may maintain electronics packages independently; there is no obligation to share all electronics package development.

Anyone is welcome to join; please post to the list. You may also join the team on Salsa to get access to project Git repositories.



There is no special policy for packages in pkg-electronics.

The appropriate maintainer and uploaders lines for team packages would look like this:

Maintainer: Debian Electronics Team <pkg-electronics-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>
Uploaders: Ramakrishnan Muthukrishnan <rkrishnan@debian.org>

Package information

QA tools

Package lists

These lists include all packages, not just maintained by the team:

Note about application categories

"Engineering;Electronics;" are used as application categories, they are non-standard, but categories such as (Education and Science) are completely inappropriate for the engineering applications maintained by the team.

This course of action does cause lintian to give desktop-entry-lacks-main-category warnings, and those warnings are ignored.

Also, extra-xdg-menus is to be added to the Recommends field (in debian/control) to provide menu categories for Electronics applications.
