Hello,<br>following Daniel's comments and questions regarding the ability to support/keep the Getdeb packages in a proper quality level I have decided to try the MOTU way.<br><br>I have a few starting comments and questions.
<br><br>The REVU main page is terrible, what is the sort criteria for the packages list ? <br><br>The following detail should be presented on the main list:<br> - last uploader comment, last reviewer comment, package status
<br>This would allow a better assessment for both the reviewers and uploaders on packages needing more activity.<br><br>I couldn't found a description of the package live cycle.<br><br>Questions:<br><br>1) What is the REVU package life cycle ?
<br>I couldn't find a description on when/who classifies the package as properly packaged, and what happens at that time. <br>Does a MOTU member need to adopt the package as a maintainer so that it gets into Universe ?
<br><br>2) Should I send a notification to the MOTU informing about that I need reviewer's feedback or I should expect proper activity from the reviewers notification ml ? (I have submitted my first package yesterday and I was expecting a quick "this is bad" comment).
<br><br>I didn't submitted my suggestion on the revu Development Center, because it seems to be broken:<br><a href="http://revu.tauware.de/cgi-bin/trac.cgi">http://revu.tauware.de/cgi-bin/trac.cgi</a><br><br>The packaging guide (
<a href="http://doc.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/packagingguide/C/index.html">http://doc.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/packagingguide/C/index.html</a>) is very clear, most of the remaining documentation and process description on how to get a new application into Ubuntu is quite puzzling.
