I'm a new member of the python-modules team (thanks Piotr) coming over
here from the python-apps team. I just ran into a need for an updated
python-xlrd, and i've updated the packaging for it.
However, i work and collaborate more comfortably in git these days than
svn, so if possible, i'd like to publish my work using git. I used
git-svn to import the old packaging, and have made my changes available
in the current python-modules git packaging repo:
* the package now uses dh_python2
* i'm including the upstream sources in the git repo
* the package is format 3.0 (quilt)
I'm planning to go ahead and do an upload to experimental with python-xlrd
0.8.0 if folks are ok with that. Please let me know if you'd rather i
don't do this.
If people are OK with it, i'm inclined to make a new revision in the svn
trunk that just leaves a README.txt that directs users to the git repo.
This brings me to the current permissions on the python-modules git
repos on git.debian.org. because /git/python-modules is not
world-readable, the repos aren't published via gitweb or git-daemon.
0 dkg at pip:~$ ssh git.debian.org ls -ld /git/python-modules
drwxrws---+ 5 root scm_python-modules 4096 Dec 30 2011 /git/python-modules
0 dkg at pip:~$
I'm proposing to "chmod o+rx /git/python/modules" to provide more
visibility to the git repositories shared by the python-modules team.
Any thoughts about this change?
