If you have unofficial packages, you would like to share, by all means, send
them in. Our requirements aren't that high. You don't need to have a gpg key
in the official Debian keyring, but you need to have experience with Debian
packageing (this site is not about learning how to package).
A new program would be integrated if:
Please remeber that every package which is DFSG-compliant should
be uploaded to Debian, not Debian Unofficial. If your package falls into one
of the exceptions mentioned above, try first to solve them upstream. Only if
you did not suceed and there is no possible solution, it may could be a
candidate for inclusion in Debian Unofficial. For further information about
how to package and upload, see the Packaging Howto and the Packaging Guidelines about the formal conventions on Debian Unofficial.
- the package is not in the official Debian repository at all
- the package cannot be uploaded into the official Debian repository,
(i.e. binary only stuff, restrictive license terms, unusual
configuration options/patches, alleged software patents infrigements...)
- the license terms do allow at least unmodified redistribution
- the license terms do not conflict with any package in the Debian
- the package is debianized well
However, do not hesitate to write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to
ask if you are unsure.
