Exactly. So you do read my mind after all :-D
Erik: I see 3 sane scenarios tied to using Alioth SVN:
1) You join the Debian-kernel team and we maintain upstream yaird and
debian subdir together. Every upstream release - even if only related
to the redhat - is also a Debian release.
2) You join the Debian-kernel team and we maintain upstream yaird and
debian subdir separately within the project. Upstream releases and
Debian releases are separate.
3) You join the Debian-kernel team if you want to work directly on the
debian subdir of yaird - or coordinate with us as now and concentrate
on the code itself - maintained as a separate Alioth project or
4) Yaird is setup as a separate Alioth project - either all of it (as
in 1 or 2) or only the debian subdir (as in 3).
One reason for 3 or 4 is the amount of "noise" if you are not
interested in what else goes on regarding kernel maintainance in
Debian. If you are in for some information overload, I suggest 2 - and
hope that in addition to more convenient maintainence of yaird compared
to now (which is somewhat clunky, as we've both agreed on) you also
gain interest in the other work here and apply you insight and hacker
skills for the benefit of Debian and the world :-)
P.S. Still no working LDAP solution, so possibly slow on responding the
next days... :-(
