The other day, chatting with one of the developers of LXDE, he ask me if I
could submit a RC version of one of the desktop components to get feedback
before the release. I have tried to submit it to X11:lxde but it has been
rejected because they only accept stable packages. This is fine and I don't
have any complaints about it.
My question is, could I submit this package to Factory via system:install:head
for example? I see git and beta versions of some packages there and that makes
me think it is possible. On the other hand, with the movement to Factory
Rolling I suppose the contrary because the objetive now is stability. So I
really don't know if it is allowed or not. Having two package sources
(X11:lxde and the other repo that I could choose) makes me think that the
answer is "no".
It is not my intention to make a rule of this and start submitting RC
packages, but this one is going to be a 1.0.0 release and it is supposed to be
an important milestone. Currently I have the package hosted in my home project
but It doesn't have the same visibility that it could have in a more prominent
If the answer is definitely "no", what ways do you know to help testing small
projects like LXDE that doesn't have a big user base?
Thanks in advance.
