I'm Pablo Mestre, currently I maintein 4 packages in Debian[1]. I'd like
to join the Debian Python team partly to help maintain the packages
colortest-python[2] and python-language-server[3].

I can confirm I've read and accept the Debian Python Team policy
document at [5]. My Salsa login is

Joining the team

2021-05-20 Thread Dave Jones


I'm Dave Jones, currently at Canonical where I work on Raspberry Pi 
related things. I'm also the author of / contributor to a few (largely 
Pi related) Python packages, including gpiozero (which is currently in 
Debian). I'd like to join the Debian Python team partly to help maintain 
the packages where I'm involved with the upstream (such as gpiozero), 
and partly in the hopes of helping get some of the Python packages which 
only exist in Raspbian upstream to Debian.

I can confirm I've read (and accept) the Debian Python Team policy 
document at [1]. My Salsa login is

As Stefano wrote, we had some discussion around Python packaging in Linux
distros.  While the linux-sig is/was very dormant the last years, we'd like to
coordinate on this list, so if you're interested in cross distro issues, please
subscribe to

Thanks, Matthias
