Hey, as promised here are the meeting minutes from our meeting last Thursday. Unless someone seriously objects to one or the other point in my summary, I'll publish these minutes tomorrow on our wiki.
Special thanks go to Eric for proofreading! ======================================================== 1st #debian-multimedia Meeting on Thursday, 03 Dec 2009 ======================================================== Meeting started by siretart` at 15:02:19 UTC. The full logs are available at http://meetbot.debian.net/debian-multimedia/2009/debian-multimedia.2009-12-03-15.02.log.html . 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: http://www.doodle.com/ak6vpsx65zswnetg * topics postponed to next meeting: debimedia, pulseaudio, mentoring sessions.
