DD's cheat card (was Re: Bug#754416: makefs: FTBFS on mips: Must set MACHINE_ARCH to one of mipseb or mipsel)

Cyril Brulebois dixit:

Ooooookay. Yes, this was a mistake of mine. But it took me about
six minutes to find the eMail address *and* the format to use for
the message. Six minutes of both duckduckgoïng and searching and
looking through devref.

It turns out that it was in devref, but ‘/’-searching in Lynx did
not find it with the right keywords.

So why is this so hard? I imagine DDs very rarely need to request
wanna-build state changes… and when they do, the information should
be easier to find.

Maybe a “gift” job for a Debian Contributor would be to put together
a “DD’s cheat card”, with infos about how to contact DSA, WB team,
etc. – nothing about the how-to of packaging, but about the orga‐
nisational things in Debian. Maybe also an excerpt of the most
relevant things from control@b.d.o, things like that, things which
a DD (or even DM) may need occasionally. Something to bookmark.

Just a thought.
