BTW, I have another issue: This mailing list recieves a lot of packaging related information which I#m not really interested in. However, de just have this mailinglist debian-multime...@l.d.o. Do you see a chance that we move discussion like this about general project management, Blends stuff, user oriented questions to this mailing list. I was asked to raise the Blends issue here on this list and so did I, but I would prefer if I would not be spammed by bug reports of multimedia packages which I'm simply not interested in. In other projects such split between user oriented list @l.d.o and a maintainer list @a.l.d.o has turned out as quite reasonable.

Well, this was discussed at the time of the merge between the two teams. Basically, we decided to have everything on the alioth list because we feared the traffic was so small we would dilute the interest. Perhaps the time has come to rethink this?

As I see it we now do not discuss opening up another communication channel but (re)using an old "brand" when marketing (some or all of) what we produce.

At the time we decided to use pkg-multimedia-maintainers instead of debian-multimedia because it avoids the name clash with Marillat's repository. (Just another datapoint to consider).

Is/was DeMuDi a derivative work like debian-multimedia? If so I agree it is easiest to avoid it.

If DeMuDi is/was a Debian-internal initiative similar to debian-edu, or those active in it are/was interested in passing it on to Debian, then I still find it interesting to consider using that name as I believe it is well known also outside Debian.
