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?
