Great! I see volatile.debian.net.
But, It took me forever to find this email :)
What issues? Anything the list can help with?
(excessively curious and eager mind wishes to know ;)
Would it be good to indicate on the web-page where communication about
this is going on (inspired by my hunt-the-email saga)?
How are packages added to the list of candidates?
On a related-but-unrelated note,
I'm interested, for myself, in the possibility of automatically packaging
upstream releases. I'm already under the impression that this is contrary
to the debian philosophy of hand-maintained packaging, so I suppose this
interest is purely personal. Can anyone offer me any pointers?
