If only the Debian Edu people would start with one copy-n-paste from
Debian Med policy
Debian GIS policy
The first was at some point derived from Debian Perl team policy and the
latter used large parts of the Debian Med policy but was overworked
later so might deal with some outdated stuff better. I guess both
documents are great resources for newcomers and you can (hopefully!)
substitute s/Debian GIS/Debian Edu/ to know what you need to know. For
sure it would be better id Debian Edu people would create such a
document (hint, hint, nag, nag).

I'm teaching "the Debian way" in "Mentoring of the Month"
in the Debian Med team and think that it would be good if other teams
could adopt this. Unfortunately I do not scale to do this properly
in more than 1.5 teams (the additional 0.5 might be in Debian GIS).

Andreas Mundt is reading this list ... if he does not answer you might
like to ping him.
