Hello all. This discussion died without any further action towards merging
both teams. I re-brought it up a few days ago at the debian-multimedia
list, and the general consensus (ie, 2 other people) is that they should
be merged. Now, re-reading this particular thread, it seems that the
pkg-multimedia team didn't have anything against it. So, lets work out a way
to move forward.
First of all, the bikeshed :) : which list and name to use. It was suggested
that debian-multimedia be kept as a discussion list about multimedia in
debian, and pkg-multimedia for the maintainership of packages. While it
sounds nice at first, I think it doesn't make much sense. At least nobody has
been using any of both lists for that purpose. I think it should be better if
only one list would be kept. I'm not sure what kind of "general" discussion
was expected in the d-m list. The kde in debian lists (which follow this
dual-list model) show that the "general discussion" one ended up pretty much
dead. I also think that Debian Multimedia Team is a cooler name.
Second, VCS coordination. From what I can see, pkg-multimedia uses svn. d-m
also uses svn, but is slowly moving towards git. Is there any interest in the
p-m people to move to git? I fear that there is no interest in d-m to move
back so svn (am I right in this?). My personal choice would be git, FWIW.
Administrative merging of the teams (ie, removing demudi or pkg-multimedia
from alioth to use only one) should be done at least right after squeeze
(since packages in lenny will point to both places).
Lets hope this gets the ball rolling.
