Hi Alba,

uhmm, your mail endet up in my SPAM folder - one more good reason to
post to the public list to make sure your mail will be found soon by a
responsible person. [So I keep the Debian Med developer list in CC :-)]

In Debian Med we also support the option to use SVN at your preference.

While I also subscribe to the do one thing at one time I think using a
Version Control System is evident for proper Debian package maintenance.
Regarding learning Debian packaging you are really welcome in the Debian
Med team since we have a good record in teaching newcomers.  You might
like to consider joining "Mentoring of the Month"


and since it involves any kind of questions the usage of Git or SVN is
included. :-)

Its in the new queue but new processing is currently quite low (which is
probably due to the freeze of Jessie.  I hope that it will be faster
again after the Jessie release.)

Hope this helps
