Sponsoring packages confusion?
I am having trouble understanding the sponsoring process.. For some
reason, all my sponsored packages were flaged as NMU [sponsored
by 2 developes]. I do not wish to blame anyone but there appears
to be little in the amount of documentation for sponsoring packages.
The maintainer's guide doesn't even specify the process [unless
I missed something].
Could someone specify the exact sponsoring procedure?
I'm going to guess here, but to sponsor, does the DD upload
his/her compilation or the maintainer's? ie. which is correct:
1. Get packages and sources from maintainer. Unpack source.
Package it with dpkg-buildpackage -k<id>. dupload.
2. Get packages and sources from maintainer. Check if they
compile. Sign original .changes and .dsc and dupload their
Or are both wrong?
