Re: Where to announce?
I have seen a number of these type of questions over the years & most
people tend to be very wary of using unsolicited software. I would
suggest that you follow the path of getting a current debian developer
to sponser the package if you can . That way it can eventually be
uploaded to the correct area of debian AFTER someone who is sanctioned
has checked it out. You should make that type of inquery on the
developers list. BE PATIENT! These folks are almost always VERY BUSY.
Also you may want to speak to some of the developers about their
experiences regarding getting started as a Debian Developer. This is
the way most people become sanctioned developers. Get sponsered. Get
I was wondering, if I had made a program, designed for Debian, and
wanted others to try it out, and give me their opinion/suggestions etc..
Would this list be a good place, or perhaps some of the devel lists?
If you are in a hurry to get the package tried out perhaps you should
list the download site and have a VERY GOOD listing of the applications
properties and especially any bugs that you are currently working on.
There are a few hardy souls who will try out apps that are presented
like this. The greatest problem is normally that there is insufficient
info on the app.
A last thought. If the app is NOT going to be liscensed as GPL, LGPL or
something appropriate for Debian you are definitly in the wrong area.
Try for a commercial development sanction.
Good Luck.! We need many more folks who are willing to allocate their
efforts to enhancing the scope of Debian.
