Re: Interest in packaging GNU Shishi and GNU Generic Security Service?
I have created rough Debian packages for Shishi:
and I am looking for a sponsor who would be willing to help me improve
them and eventually upload the packages into main.
I can put the debian/ files into CVS and give write access to
sponsors, if that would help accelerate the process.
IIRC, Russ earlier expressed interest in helping as a co-maintainer in
a collaborate effort to maintain Debian packages for Shishi. Russ,
are you still interested?
