I wish to participate in the Outreachy
<https://www.outreachy.org/2018-may-august/communities/debian/> program and
I have chosen #890786
<https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=890786> to start making
contributions to the Debian Med project. I've fixed the bug locally and
tested the changes following (hopefully) New Maintainer's Guide
<https://www.debian.org/doc/maint-guide/>, and *autopkgtest* manpages.
At this point, I would like to export these changes to the Debian Med
repository to finally fix the bug. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to go
about it. Should I request membership to the Debian Med group on Alioth
page as Debian Med Group Policy
<https://debian-med.alioth.debian.org/docs/policy.html#membership> says? Or
a newcomer should follow a different procedure (e.g., post a patch on a bug
tracker or find a sponsor)?
