Hi Maarten,

He has put a link to the *.dsc file in one of his previous e-mails:


There is a tool out there to fetch the packages by *.dsc of which I
can't remember, because paradoxically I'm a Red Hat guy, but you can
also fetch the package manually:

Dmitry also agrees on that.

I have just checked collab-maint out and apparently it's just an alioth
project were people can have same access rights to git repositories
hosting packages.

As far as I understand the idea behind this set up, it is often
convenient to have less granularity in whom exactly has push access to
the repositories.

For many packages you would actually like to have all DDs access to it +
even some proven -guest accounts.

I don't mind if Dmitry creates a nice and fresh gbp-compatible
repository at collab-maint as long as I can also be added to
collab-maint, so that I have push access.

I'm not a control freak and besides, the pkg-mc team has almost ceased
its existence, so maybe collab-maint based reboot is in order.

Hopefully the above answers your questions.

Sincerely yours,
