Changes in the maintenance of the Developers Reference


Following a discussion on debian-devel@l.d.o[1], the way the Developers
Reference[2] is maintained has been changed, with the aim to make it
more public and easier for people to contribute.

Changes to developers-reference are now discussed on debian-policy@l.d.o
(also used for debian-policy). Don't hesitate to jump in and contribute
to the discussions.

Also, patches for developers-reference are very welcomed. In particular,
it would be great if new (or not so new) packaging practices were more
documented, like packaging processes with the various VCSes, cdbs and
dh, patch systems, etc. Some teams have already written some
documentation about that, and it could probably be gathered in

Finally, we could use the help from one or two other editors. Their role
is to direct the discussions around the patches, and integrate them into
developers-reference. If you want to help, contact the current
maintainers and participate in the discussions on debian-policy@.

Lucas, for the developers-reference maintainers
