If you are wanting to do a sponsored NMU (which is kind of odd), be sure you are very familiar with the NMU procedure <http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/pkgs.html#nmu> and the sponsorship process <http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers- reference/new-maintainer.html>. > The packages can be found here: > > http://www.corpit.ru/debian/tls/kvm/ I did not review your package.

To be a Debian Developer, you need to be *very* familiar with a few documents: * Debian Reference * Debian Developer's Reference * Debian Policy Manual * Debian Menu System They are long and dense. You might want to start with some lighter introductions, but you cannot stop there: * Debian New Maintainers' Guide * Introduction to i18n Finally, there may be specific policy documents that apply to the package(s) you are most interested in. For example, maintainers of java-related packages should be familiar with the "Debian GNU/Linux and Java FAQ". All of these documents are available from <http://www.debian.org/doc/>. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
