But if I remember right ftp.debian.org is an official debian repository to which
only the DDs/Maintainers of a package have access to.
Doesn't that mean I cant upload packages to this repository? Are there
exceptional places on ftp.debian.org a non-maintainer can upload his packages
to without triggering the alarmbells?
If there is a documentation page I haven't yet seen please do tell. I really
really want to get packages into debian.
