Neither package are really debian-ready at this point. I started both
using quickly in Ubuntu, which really makes for some bad packaging.
Ideally I'll have mugshot ready to package soon.
What needs to be done to become a member of the PAPT?

>> Hey everyone!
>> I missed the meeting today, but here's a summary of where I am at
>> with each of my items (feel free to add anything I missed).
>> === Menulibre(2) ===
>> The rewrite/restructure of MenuLibre has been moving along quite
>> well. The application does not currently do any editing, but the
>> majority of that code is going to be imported from the original. It
>> does read the current menu structure correctly and I'm working on
>> being able to also write that menu structure. The interface is also
>> pretty much complete, unless there are suggestions or concerns...
>> * Interface is complete
>> * Menus and menu items are correctly read and processed
>> * Menu editing is under way
>> * Once complete, get it packaged and uploaded to debian
>> === Mugshot ===
>> There is not a terrible lot that needs to be done for mugshot. I
>> need to do some debugging however, as the camera portion of the
>> application seems a bit flaky on my new laptop.
>> * Figure out camera woes
>> * Remove yelp dependency, get rid of help button
>> * Get packaged and uploaded to debian (hopefully with Noskcaj's help)
>> === Catfish ===
>> There are some outstanding bugs in the 13.04 and 13.10 versions,
>> I'll be addressing those soon. Additionally, there are some new
>> debian bugs which I also hope to address shortly and the fixes will
>> roll back into trusty.
>> * LP #1258713: [NEW] Catfish crashing with gi._glib.GError: Icon
>> 'camera-photo' not present in theme
>> * Debian #731363: catfish: depends on locate undocumented and
>> without favoring mlocate
>> === Parole Media Player ===
>> Simon and I have finished the GTK3 port, and have been working with
>> other contributors on a new MPRIS2 plugin. There is still the
>> outstanding issue of packaging in Ubuntu that makes the plugins not
>> work, we'll need to investigate. The last time I checked, the
>> packaging was working correctly in debian.
>> * New GTK3 version
>> * New MPRIS2 plugin
>> * 0.5.91 to be released this weekend
>> * Plugin packaging to be investigated
>> === LightDM GTK+ Greeter ===
>> We've had a new contributor to the greeter, adding lots of fixes and
>> new functionality. We'll be doing the first development release this
>> cycle shortly, and we're going to need significant testing for all
>> the new things we've added. I'll be extending the
>> lightdm-gtk-greeter PPA with trusty builds sometime in the next few
>> * New contributor adding lots of fixes and new features
>> * Trusty packages coming to the PPA shortly
>> Let me know if there are any questions or concerns.
