Subject: RFH: proftpd-dfsg
Date: Tue, 10 Mar 2009 21:23:07 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

With the release of 1.3.2 of proftpd is finally in place prxs and the whole infrastructure
for building third-parties modules. I know currently at least about 30 different modules
available as non-core and some of them are sometimes requested by users. 
See http://castaglia.org/proftpd/#Modules for the list of them.

My idea is having new separate packages for add-on modules ready for squeeze 
and maintained by a little team of weakly connected people, in order to stay in sync with
patches, modules and core. Note that proftpd requires generally a good
deal of contributed patches to be in shape for the release. A decent
knowledge of its various configuration options and inners is mandatory.

In order to have an idea of the level of dedication required, prospective
helpers can consult the past 12 years of changelog.Debian, then contact
me.

Cheers

Hi 

thanks for your efforts, but I would prefer having contributed
modules maintained as separate source packages, which is possible
thanks to the use of prxs and the proftpd-dev package.

Note that it is now active a pkg-proftpd alioth project

Other add-on module packages can be added under pkg-proftpd

Hi,

I was sifting through wnpp bugs and saw this one.

Indeed.  Since it is not documented at <http://wiki.debian.org/Teams>,
maybe it is not easily discoverable.

Would you mind if I add a subpage there?  It would contain information
answering basic questions about how to work with the team that are not
likely to change often (to avoid growing stale).  Template taken from
<http://wiki.debian.org/TeamTemplate>.  Something like

 Infrastructure
 --------------
 Packages: http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=pkg-proftpd-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org
 Alioth project: https://alioth.debian.org/projects/pkg-proftpd/

 Interacting with the team
 -------------------------
 Email contact: pkg-proftpd-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org

 Usual roles
 -----------
 Anyone on the team can commit good changes to the repositories
 and ask on the list for review and upload.

 Task description
 ----------------
 Proftpd has more than 20 different non-core modules available and
 some of them are important to users.
 See http://castaglia.org/proftpd/#Modules for a list.

 The pkg-proftpd team aims to package all important modules and to
 keep proftpd-dfsg and its modules maintained well in Debian.

 Get involved
 ------------
 All packages under the pkg-proftpd umbrella have Vcs-Git and
 Vcs-Browser fields declaring the git repositories where they are
 developed.

 New add-on module packages can be added easily. Just ask on Alioth to
 join the pkg-proftpd group.

Then the information about how to help would be easy to find and this
report would not be needed any more.

Sensible?
Jonathan

Yes and indeed there are also a few mere packaging aspects that are
documented only trough the mailing list and other module packages,
eventually they could be added to the page.

Ok, I've put something rough at [[Teams/DebianProFTPD]] and linked
to it from the [[Teams]] page.

Thoughts and improvements welcome, of course.
