Re: how to donate free program for Debian?


thank you for your interest, in contributing to Debian! In order to
include your program in the Debian GNU/Linux distribution it needs to be
turned into a Debian package[0], that is then added to the Debian
archive[1]. If the program should be in the main archive it additionally
needs to have a free license[2]. What license does your program have?

You can then either build the Debian package yourself[3] and have it
sponsored by a Debian Developer, or, if you don't know how to do so,
file an RFP (Request for Package) bug at the Debian Bug Tracking
System[4] against the wnpp (Work-Needing and Prospective Packages)
pseudo package including your request.

Hope that helps,
