my summary, I'll publish these minutes tomorrow on our wiki.

1st #debian-multimedia Meeting on Thursday, 03 Dec 2009
========================================================

Meeting summary
---------------
* introduction round  (siretart`, 15:03:32)

  * the present team members introduced themselves

* sponsoring and spreading the load among DDs  (siretart`, 15:12:56)

  * A backlog of packages to be uploaded was pointed out by
    siretart` and confirmed by free.

  * It was pointed out that our wiki pages generally could need
    some rework. Pages like:
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/DevelopPackaging
    indeed have much useful information, but could generally need
    some cleanups.

  * ACTION: edrz agrees to update wiki with stuff agreed in this
    meeting.  (edrz, 15:20:26)

  * It was proposed to create checklist with recommendations on
    how to make potential sponsor their lives easier:
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/Sponsoring

  * ACTION: DDs will list their packaging tool preference on
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/Sponsoring  (edrz, 15:32:33)

* improving packaging guidelines  (siretart`, 15:26:06)

  * bdrung asked if we should recommend dpkg source format
    3.0 (quilt). The general consensus was that there was no
    immediate need for it but not all helper tools like
    git-buildpackage properly cope with it.

  * the team agreed to mandate DEP-3 headers in patches

  * ACTION: siretart` fsateler agree to update DevelopPackaging on wiki
     0K . (edrz, 15:39:13)

* Package lifecycle and scope of the team  (siretart`, 15:27:07)

  * siretart asked "under which situations do we want to consider
    orphaning or removing the package from the team and/or
    Debian". Lool proposed to test the interest in a package
    among team members in order to find out if a package
    is "acceptable" for the team.

  * siretart then suggested to use the the uploaders field of
    debian/changelog for documenting interest. The first person
    listed there should be the regular uploader, followed by
    names of team members supporting the package.  No real
    objection was raised.

  * There is no strict enforcement on this, though it was agreed
    to start a discussion on the list as needed.

  * edrz notes that a team member is a person with an Alioth
    account who has been added to pkg-multimedia-maintainers
    team (edrz, 15:45:53)

* Next meeting

  * edrz setup a new doodle poll for the next meeting. It will
    happen early to mid of January. Please vote your preference:

  * topics postponed to next meeting: debimedia, pulseaudio, mentoring
    sessions.  (edrz, 15:55:43)

Meeting ended at 16:01:23 UTC.
