Howdy! I'll start off by introducing myself! I'm MTecknology! I'm hear because I had a goal, and I haven't lost sight of that, but I need some help getting there.
Gogs  is a tool that I personally use heavily. My entire infrastructure is deployed and configured by changes in git. Since gogs is one of the few tools I use that's not currently packaged in Debian, and because I want to be more involved in Debian, this seemed like a logical place to start. (I was wrong) My first topic of interest should be simple. I feel like pkg-go is an interesting group and I'd like to contribute to it. I've played with golang packaging up until the point of pushing things to Debian servers. Based on my experience... I'd like to take on contributing to pkg-go so that the build dependencies for gogs will exist in Debian. As part of a team, my interests would obviously be inclined to grow. The question here becomes, where can I find a list of expectations prior to joining this group and how would I do that? The second, and directly related, topic of interest is gogs. I took over the abandoned ITP  thinking it seemed relatively simple and straight forward. I sure as crap jumped in way over my head, so now seems like a good time to learn how to swim. :P While I was working through the dependency chain for gogs, I ran into quite the clusterfuck. I'd like to assume this is normal exactly nowhere. Please, don't tell me if I'm wrong. I've documented the "dependency hell" in the ITP . My first question on this topic becomes, is this even suitable for Debian? Based on that list of dependencies, is gogs something we want included? If so, I'd love to continue pursuing the endeavor, but I would absolutely love to stop now if that's not the case. If it's decided that gogs should be included in Debian, and also decided that I get to help push out dependencies, then I could /really/ use a little bit of hand holding on the first couple. Some of the issues that popped up seem pretty challenging for a novice such as myself. Anyone willing? :) I have a few other questions, such as how cyclical and circular dependencies should be handled, but those seem like "not now" questions.  https://gogs.io/  https://bugs.debian.org/792101 -- Michael Lustfield _______________________________________________ Pkg-go-maintainers mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-go-maintainers
