Title : Proposal Regarding Debian Packaging
Proposal Status : Final
A guy who took the amazing readily available software packages in Debian for granted, but now wants to pay back by doing the same for remaining software packages.
Benefits to Community As of now i am unaware of the various stuff left to be packaged.But I am sure,if i develop this skill, I can help people package local, community based software which will in the end help the community as a whole. In future, if I myself develop a piece of software, I should know how to package it.I can ask and learn from people as to what all software packages they feel should be present and then work accordingly.
On an average i will be able to dedicate 1 to 1.5 hrs every alternate day. I do not know exactly what to write here but yes i am ready to adapt to whatever my mentor suggests me and will try my level best to complete it.
So I basically have no actual prior experience when it comes to Debian packaging.I made up by mind for this as during the session , mentor -Shruti spoke that let nothing hold you back from Debian packaging(emphasizing on technical ability). I do know how to program in Java,C & Python.I will be joining college as a first year student - Academic Year(2020-2021).For more info please have a look at my humble website
