Thanks for this reminder. For both r-cran-nfactors and r-cran-semplot there already _is_ work in our g...@salsa.debian.org:r-pkg-team : at r-cran-nfactors.git and r-cran-semplot.git . So no need for prepare_missing_cran_package for those. I cannot commit to maintaining these packages appear in a stable Debian release: I do all my R packaging work during $dayjob; I'm mainly interested in keeping the packages working on Debian stable, and somewhat in sync with upsteam. So that's technically what would end up in debian backports. The reason I stick the work in git @ salsa is I feel there's a chance others might benefit from it too. That's the reason I've recently not been very active in actually uploading it to NEW. There some packages of me in our git now for which I've not yet posted ITP's. I believe this interferes badly with some of your workflows. Would it help you if I actually _would_ post ITP's? I'd be glad to. Also, debian/copyright of most of my recent packages is still lacking. I'll try to find time to work on that (note to self: have another look at cme). What do you think? Bye, Joost PS: thanks for your talk @ debconf, I enjoyed the video!
