as there was just a post about Jitsi and Debian: Is there a way to
contribute to the process of getting Jitsi fit for inclusion in Debian?
It's been a loooot of work but we are on the verge of making our first
submission. Hopefully this week, if not, then next one. From that point
on we'd be happy to have any help addressing issues raised by the debian

program, so I have very basic understanding of packaging and Debian
policies. Unfortunately I cannot really code, but I can read code on a
That was the problem. We've had suggestion for help previously but what
we really needed to do is identify all the deps and build a mechanism
for felix to use those that are available on debian. This was tricky but
we now have it. We also needed to contribute back to FFmpeg the patches
that we had (as opposed to just publishing them in our repo) and change
the way we were using it for those that they wouldn't take.
All of this was development work.
If I can be of any assistance in sorting out the library issues to the
satisfaction of the Debian und the Jitsi teams, I would be very glad.
Being able to get Jitsi from the main repository would be huge.
We agree on that and hopefully it will be a fact soon enough
