Re: Bug#514690: ITP: artha -- A handy off-line thesaurus based on WordNet

Hi Andreas,
Actually, I am new to packaging in Debian. I read the New Maintainer's guide and created 2 .deb packages (i386 & amd64). I have put them here @ SF.net for local download by general users, not in a proper apt repository. All the control files, rules, etc. are in my system, locally. They are not in any version controlled area. As per the Debian docs, I have filed a ITP bug. I encountered this site mentors.debian.net, where its says new packages needing sponsors are to be uploaded. Now, should I upload my packages there and get them sponsored first? Or should I first check in the control files in the location you pointed me to. If so, how will I get the credintials to login.

Thanks for your time.

Warm Regards

Sponsoring your package is perfectly OK.  You might consider putting the package under
team maintenance.  WordNet is
