Re: RFS: pyecm

I think you can re-upload a package over the existing one on mentors. If
not, you can delete the old one via the web interface.

It would be nice if you re-upload with the new description, but it is
not necessary.

It is a good idea for discussions like this to be made to the -mentors
list. I have taken the liberty of replying to the list so my further
comments are made public.

I had a brief look at your package and noticed a couple of things:

- Your package should be updated for the new Python policy

- Many sponsors like to have commented-out debhelper entries in the
debian/rules file removed altogether.

A couple of useful sponsorship checklists are:

- http://people.debian.org/~mpalmer/sponsorship_checklist.html
