Subject: *.d.o: Please document ftp hints
Date: Mon, 7 Nov 2005 18:00:31 -0500
Package: qa.debian.org, ftp.debian.org, www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist
File: http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/hints/

Please integrate documentation of the testing hints in useful places.
I would suggest the following:

  http://packages.qa.debian.org/ might need a section to indicate when
  a package has been hinted, or can be added to an existing section;

  http://www.debian.org/devel/testing/ might have a direct link and a
  new paragraph about testing hints and how they relate to the
  conditions necessary for testing propogation;

  http://ftp.debian.org/ might have a direct link and a sentence about
  "<a>Testing hints</a> are available."

I would also suggest that other such things are made available from
the FTP webserver.  Also, it would be nice this were also available
from FTP server, or if directory browsing from a higher level
directory was allowed for the webserver.

retitle 338048 Please refer to DevRef for a discussion of testing hints
reassign 338048 www.debian.org
thanks

There is a pretty-good description of hints here:
  http://www.debian.org/doc/developers-reference/ch-pkgs#s-details

I think it is sufficient if devel/testing/ would reference that
section of that document, since the ftp page already links to
devel/testing, and I'm not sure if this info would benefit the QA
page.
