Well, probably the Debian Edu team, as we are talking about the Debian Edu team ;)?

Assuming you have your packaging work in a Git repository, start by joining the team on Alioth, then push your repo to the team space.

We can then start from there.

unstable - but only when the package is ready, which it probably isn't. Just remove the package from mentors for now and publish the packaging repository instead.

I can confirm the redirector works like a charm, so it's probably something else ;).

Leave the revision as it is. The first uploaded package will get -1.

You can find me on IRC #debian-edu as Natureshadow, or as nik@mercurius.teckids.org on Jabber.
