Re: Please try expo.debian.net -- a replacement for mentors.debian.net



Hello Asheesh,

Before all, thanks you for this information and your work :) . The web
design is nice ! A beginner like me, the main stuff will be to have a
short text which explain how to upload your package on expo platform
and a short reminder on the packaging process. I know this documents
are available in debian policy, debian maintainers and wiki but a
beginner have not the reflex to check this big documents. :)
The menu colors are cool too for underline the sections.

> Frankly, I think it's ready as-is! Go to http://expo.debian.net/ to try it.
