You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.

No packager, but still put my name therein. Btw here's something
perhaps both for Debian newbies, packagers and developers I posted
just a while back. http://wp.me/pfuZu-nI

Hi all,
I am no packager and this is going to be a packaging session
so while I do not know how I can/could help here is something that I
could do although I do not know how I could help it further.

There is a physics game engine called bulletphysics which is being
used by few games and could be used by lot more games. It is in WNPP
and had been requested about 3 years back.

Here's the bug-report for that.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=476284

Ok, long long time back I had read a bit about packaging and learnt
that what one needs to do is

a. First have a clean environment, a seperate chroot to build the
package, where it downloads all the requirements for building. This
takes quite a fair amount of disk space and network I/O

b. Secondly, getting the package builder in something called the pbuilder.

While I can make the engine for the self I would like to see it in
debian but not want to go the whole hog all the way. While I can do
having the clean environment, taking the thing in pbuilder and doing
as much as can be in that, I need somebody else to take the ownership
of the resultant package after that because its not something I want
to take ownership of for a variety of reasons. We can chat on IRC as
well and see what works or not but submissions and seeking sponsorship
for uploads from DD's and DM's would have to be done by someone else,
preferably some student so they can get some experience in dealing
with them and seeing/being part of that experience.

Please lemme know how we can plan this/take this forward.
