Hello All,

I've added some scripts to git repository of pkg-fonts like mr scripts
which will allow mass update and few other magic. First of all I request
every one to clone following

      git clone git.debian.org:/git/pkg-fonts/pkg-fonts.git

Once this is cloned please move all your package git repositories inside
this folder. As an example I've fonts-lato fonts-johnsmith-induni
fonts-android repository

      mv fonts-johnsmith-induni fonts-lato fonts-android pkg-fonts/

Next step will be running make-mrconfig do the following

     cd pkg-fonts #cloned repo from above

This script will create .mrconfig and .gitignore files (a sample is
already present in repo) This will allow you to mass clone/update all
packages in fonts team git repo. After make-mrconfig is finished, run
below command

      mr up

This will get all git repos from the pkg-fonts team.

Additionally repository also contain following script

1. git-missing-pristine-tar
2. git-missing-upstream

Run this script in package repo's which misses pristine-tar or upstream
branch that will be created and committed by these scripts. After that
you need to do

      git push --all
      git push --tags

There is one more script which I took from pkg-perl team along with
above 2 scripts its called update_package.bash this script can be used
to do automatic bumping of standrds-version currently it works from
3.8.4 to 3.9.3 I'm still preparing this script and once its modified for
our team I will commit it to pkg-fonts.git

Next Topic: IRC

We don't have IRC channel for Debian Fonts Task Force team and I've
created one at #debian-fonts IRC. I've added pabs and bubulle as Masters
for channel please hangout here :-). I will request KGB to be added for
our git repositories and may be as last step we should get PET for the
team considering amount of package we maintain.

Please share your thoughts

Best Regards
