Re: RFC: DEP-14: Recommended layout for Git packaging repositories
[ Ccing the maintainers of git packaging helper tools ]
using your mail as an opportunity to explicity notify the respective
package maintainers of this ongoing DEP.
Guido, Bernhard, Ron, if you are not reading debian-devel, I would
like to bring your attention to a discussion that I recently started
about trying to standardize the layout of Git packaging repositories:
This mail is part of this discussion.

My own idea was to involve the respective package maintainers in this
discussion (now done with this mail) and once we have an agreed-upon DEP
then to suggest a sprint (IRL or not) to update the respective tools.
I would be willing to participate to such a sprint and do my share
of the work (although I'm primarily using git-buildpackage and would
likely start with this helper tool).
Guido, Bernhard, Ron, would you be interested to attend such a sprint?
Are there other persons who would be interested to help us implement
the required changes?
