Universe Sponsors Queue

Purpose

  • The [https://bugs.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-universe-sponsors/+subscribedbugs Universe Sponsors Queue] is used by [:MOTU/Contributing:Contributors] who have not yet been granted upload permission to the Ubuntu archives to submit changes to packages for review. It is intended to be used to solicit sponsorship of uploads for new package revisions and to request approval for sync requests. The contents of this queue are expected to include: sync requests, merge requests, and bugs for which a patch is available and has been packaged to represent a new revision for release.

Notes for Contributors

Before subscribing ubuntu-universe-sponsors to a bug, please check the following:

  • 1 Your patch is in debdiff format.
    • If it is just a patch against the source, please consider adding the "patch" tag, so that other contributors can easily find the patch and create a debdiff.
    2 The debdiff is targeted against the current development environment
    • Unless you are processing a [:MOTU/SRU:Stable Release Update], the patch should be against the current development environment. Check https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/packagename to make sure that you are working from the latest sources.

    • Check your .changes file to make sure that you have the right revision and distribution.

    3 All changes in the patch are intentional
    • Review the patch manually. If there are unexpected changes, consider removing them from the patch, either using filterdiff or manually. If you are uncertain, seek advice from #ubuntu-motu or your [:MOTU/Mentoring:Mentor]

    4 Your patch applies cleanly
