Low-hanging fruits meetings: let's get started


at last DebConf we decided to spend a while together, every month or
every second month, on many small tasks that take less than 2 hours
each, and are waiting in the TODO list for too long. I was supposed to
propose the date for the first meeting and to suggest tasks. I'm late,
but here we go.


  [ ] Option A: date -d 'Wed Jan 8 18:00:00 GMT 2014'
  [ ] Option B: date -d 'Thu Jan 9 18:00:00 GMT 2014'
  [ ] Option C: date -d 'Fri Jan 24 18:00:00 GMT 2014'

Please consider voting on this (2 means it's good, 0 means you can't
make it, 1 means you could make it but it's a bit annoying for you).

Deadline: in a week, that is Saturday, Dec 21.

Means and goals

  1. Welcome newcomers <= have one or three experienced team members
     stay available to match tasks to people and answer questions.
  2. Direct communication & coordination between team members => light
     workflow, feeling that things are going smoothly.
  3. Get this warm feeling of working together (=> Feel Good™, get the
     motivation to tackle less fun tasks).

Proposed tasks

  - Poke upstream about forwarded patches that were not integrated
    yet, starting with the Perl 5.18 transition ones [1].

  - Remove "dh_builddeb -- -Zxz" from debian/rules [2].

  - Patches triaging: check that patches are still relevant and
    forward those that were not sent upstream yet. I suggest using
    popcon data to start with the most important packages. Is there
    a place where we can list all our packages, sorted by popularity?
