Re: Bug#311215: RFP: gajim -- a GTK Jabber client

If you read their downloads page they actually have some debs on their
own site, maybe instead of getting another lot of packages around the
world, convince them to get a sponsor and upload it to debian

Heres some links:

http://people.debian.org/~mpalmer/debian-mentors_FAQ.html - how to get
a package sponsor.
http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ - what they need to read to
even get consideration
http://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/ - information for them on
maintaining their package to debian standards
