the proposal is here: http://wiki.debian.org/CopyrightReview.
To be honest, it did not have success at all. However, taking "advantage" of
the time pakcages spend in the NEW queue, I recently modified the proposal as
After uploading a new package, look at two packages that are above yours in the
queue, review them and send your conclusions to their ITP bug. There are two
- By spotting errors of others, one may shorten the time his own package stay
in the queue.
- If the persons who got a review play the game, it is a chain reaction that
should propagate to the whole queue :)
Nowardays, it is very easy to set up a mentors.debian.net account. I have
decided to systematically upload my new packages there in addition to
ftp-master, to make them available to the world. Unfortunately, it is not
possible to access NEW packages from ftp-master since if the packages contain
some undeclared cryptography, it would be an illegal export for which Debian
may be liable (http://www.debian.org/legal/cryptoinmain).
