Suggestions On Getting A Sponsor
I posted several messages to this list earlier this month about getting
my package sponsored. Lots of people gave me great suggestions on how
to improve the packing and other general ideas. However no one seemed
interested in uploading the package. I have been monitoring this for
for a month now and it looks like other people might be having a similar
experience. Is there a better resource for actually finding some one to
upload a package. I have tried posting a message to
http://mentors.debian.net/phpbb/ but that forum seems to be a little on
the dead side.
I am sure that the developers on this list are pretty busy and I
understand why taking on additional tasks can be a burden, but I am
really interested in getting this package uploaded. I will do whatever
it takes to make sure that the package is of high quality and is
maintained in the proper fashion. If anyone has any suggestions as to
where I can look for a sponsor, or how to better represent myself and
the package so that people might take an interest it would be greatly
