Re: Announcements for .debs not in distribution?
Is this not a subset of third party package releases? The
packages you are talking about are made available by you, personally,
as a gesture of goodwill, but they are still unofficial packages
(though made by a person who also happens to be a Debian developer).
Are we going to provide services to third party packages? The
consensus seems to be against providing other services (like a bug
tracking service). Would we provide mailing lists for Jim's
unofficial site as well?
