Let me clear some things before we continue.
We still have to make the decision whether to integrate DeMuDi into
Debian or have DeMuDi live a life of its own (although as a good
neighbour with Debian). Many decisions (including the creation of a
separate gforge installation) depend on this.
Of course, *if* we decide to integrate DeMuDi into Debian, we will
follow all Debian rules, that's obvious (and I don't think there would
be any way of not doing it, even if we wanted to do it, which is not
If we decide that DeMuDi should live a life on its own (and there are
many reasons why we could decide that way, some technical and some
political, such as the fact the DeMuDi is an official European Project
and as such has a number of responsibilities which Debian fortunately
doesn't have) then a separate structure, both tecnical and
organizative, is due. I'm trying hard to find a way such as that, in
the case DeMuDi had to live a life of its own (which, btw, seems like
a `must' to me, given the political obligations that we have) we can
cooperate with Debian to the maximum extent possible. That includes
bug reporting, bug filtering (for bugs which are DeMuDi specific) and
so on. Any help on this issue, when we finally reach a consensus on
this, will be greatly appreciated.
Please note that "we", in this context, refers to the people and
organizations which are legally responsible for DeMuDi. In this
moment, I am legally responsible for DeMuDi towards Centro Tempo
Reale, which in turns is legally responsible toward the European
Union, having signed a contract which states that.
As a side note, I would like to stress that Marco original proposal as
I understood it was to have a debian-multimedia subproject which is
distinct from DeMuDi, both from a technical and from a legal/political
standpoint. So, considerations on debian-multimedia shouldn't be
automatically applied to DeMuDi (although there could be and ought to
be, in my opinion, a crosspollination between the two projects and
between DeMuDi and Debian in general).
Thank you for your technical comments, which are very precious for me
while I write down my internal proposal for DeMuDi team members.
