How to start with Packaging

This is a list for pages related to the packaging process. If you know of a related page that is currently lost in the wiki, feel free to add it to the list.

Tasks And Bugs

gNewSense developers use Savannah as their project management system. All gNewSense development teams use the Savannah issue trackers to report and track the status of tasks and bugs related to their respective fields. This is why joining the team requires that you create an account on Savannah.

When submitting a new task or bug to the trackers, be sure to use the appropriate category for them: packaging.

Migrate tasks to the Task manager

The following tasks should be migrated to gNewSense's Task Manager in Savannah. This section could have a description on how to submit new tasks, and give directions on how to work on current tasks.
