In fact, I got the debian folder part of it all done, placed in Ubuntu Cinnamon's GitHub Repos: https://github.com/Ubuntu-Cinnamon-Remix. For me, this is mostly an announcement post saying I'm ready.

I suggest that Fabio Fantoni <fantonifabio@tiscali.it>, if willing, should also help step up.

@Norbert: today I added a d/patch to nemo from upstream
that fixed some bugs with favorites including closing of #988924, I
already tested it, you think is possible upload it or it's not important

about upload packages if you want I'll start the procedure for DM
(https://nm.debian.org/person/fantu/), since 2014 I only contributed on
git (alioth and salsa) and upload was always did from some DDs
(including you)
