As for your underlying question - how to start working on this package, based on existing official packaging efforts, here's a smart oneliner I just discovered to day, which generates a new Git repository from all officially archived prior releases of a package (i.e. relevant when the package was not previously maintained in a VCS):


  git-import-dscs --debsnap --pristine-tar --sign-tags mma

Hi Jonas,

This works on my local machine. How would I go about
creating the corresponding git repository corresponding
to this?

   git+ssh://git.debian.org/git/pkg-multimedia/mma.git

Since you address me explicitly:

Sorry, I will not (at the moment, at least) take time to guide you in detail on the basics of packaging and using Alioth. I am involved in many exciting projects already, and I might help out with your needs here too, but don't count on it.

Please read http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia - and especially
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia/DevelopPackaging - and if you still need help then please do seek it more generally, both at this list (without addressing me in particular) and at other parts of the larger Debian community.


Kind regards,

 - Jonas
