== New implementation ==

The current codebase is being rewritten from scratch into a package called [[https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debmans.git/|Debmans]], see the [[https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debmans.git/tree/README.md|README]] for more information and the [[https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debmans.git/tree/DESIGN.md|DESIGN]] file for a discussion on the implementation.

At this point, the code can extract all files from a mirror efficiently and convert them to HTML. It has not been tested on a full mirror yet, because TheAnarcat is waiting for `manpages` group access and dependencies install (`setuptools` from backports and/or `python-click`, `python-apt` and `python-debian`). See the [[https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debmans.git/tree/TODO.md|TODO]] file for more information about the current status of the project and limitations.

= Hardware =

The old service used to run on `glinka.debian.org`. [[Teams/DSA]] requested the service should be moved to `manziarly.debian.org`.

= Forum =

Discussions about manpages.debian.org can take place on the regular [[Teams/DDP]] channels, for example the `#debian-doc` IRC channel and `debian-doc@lists.debian.org` mailing list.
