I hereby dub EPrints a GNU package.
Please don't forget to mention prominently in the README file and
other suitable documentation places that it is a GNU program.
The new-gnu people will mail you a file, maintain.text, which
describes a lot of procedures for GNU maintainers. The file also
describes who you can ask for various kinds of support or advice. If
you encounter a situation where it isn't clear what to do, you can
also ask address@hidden, which is a list of a few other GNU
maintainers who have offered to answer questions for new maintainers.
They will also add you to the gnu-prog mailing list, a moderated list
for announcements to GNU maintainers. They will also add you to the
gnu-prog-disc list, which can be used for discussion among GNU
maintainers, but whether to stay on the list is up to you.
Would you like to make ftp.gnu.org the distribution site?
If so, please tell address@hidden when you have
a version to release. If you need, we can make an acct for
you on ftp.gnu.org so you can install new versions.
We've agreed that the main web site for this package will be your
existing site, but please write one or two basic pages about the
program, to put in http://www.gnu.org/software/PROGRAMNAME. In
writing these web pages, please follow the style guidelines in
http://www.gnu.org/server/fsf-html-style-sheet.html. You can send the
pages to address@hidden when you are done, or you can use Savannah
to install and edit them directly.
You probably don't need to use our CVS repository, Savannah, for the
sources of EPrints, but you're welcome to use Savannah if you want.
To set this up, visit http://savannah.gnu.org/.
Please also write an entry or a change for the page
http://www.gnu.org/people/people.html, and mail that to
address@hidden also. Note that we don't want to talk about
proprietary software, so if you have worked on any, please don't
mention it here. Your entry can include a link to your home page
provided it fits our usual criteria for what we link to.
Please fill out an entry about your program for our Free Software
Directory. Please contact address@hidden for more info about
Please talk with address@hidden about creating the mailing lists that
you need. There should be at least one, address@hidden, for
reporting bugs. Please tell them whether you would like this list to
be open to the public or just an alias going to whoever you choose.
Also please say whether you would like to have a public archive of the
If there are a few alternative names that might be natural for users
to use, let's make all the aliases that might be useful. If you want
these lists to be aliases for lists on your site, that is ok; ask
new-gnu to set them up that way.
Some GNU programs have another mailing list, address@hidden,
for people to ask other users for help. And some programs have a list
address@hidden for sending announcements to the users. (These
are often moderated.) Please think about whether such lists are
appropriate for this program; please ask for them if you want them.
Please mail an announcement to address@hidden about the existence of
the program, either when the program is released, or now if the
program is already released. Include a brief description of the
program so people can tell whether they are interested in using it.
Mention the web pages on www.gnu.org and say where to get the program
new-gnu people, could you please enter him in gnuorg/maintainers,
add him to the gnu-prog lists, and send him a copy of maintain.text?
Please add a note in maintainers that we agreed that the main
site for this package will not be on www.gnu.org.
