That's not true. Despite being from a time before me, I know that the 'pending' tag long predates the common usage of a VCS for packaging. It just means the change has been added to the maintainer's working tree, whatever that means. In the case of a NMU it just has a different meaning of being already uploaded to a delayed queue (or not, you can do a NMU by announcing you will upload in 5 days without using the technicality of the delayed upload queue). Consider that usually NMUs are not committed anywhere in the maintainer's space. > I think the appropriate answer to your remarks is to include your template > feature, and add a --no-pending-tag argument to prevent the pending tag from > being added to the mail. > > Apart from that, I don't see how it would make a real difference between being > DD/DM or just a contributor. As a non-DD I'd probably look for a template that says something like "I've prepared …… and I'm now looking for sponsorship for an upload to DELAYED/whatever", with the idea that then whenever a sponsor uploads just adds the 'pending' tag. But I've been a DD for too long, I don't remember anymore my troubles with NMUs when I wasn't yet a DD, what about you? -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
