As per meeting with nodens.

......@@ -66,14 +66,22 @@ The Tails Foundations Team is responsible for:
implementing a feature that is needed to keep Tails relevant.
* Maintain Tails relevant Debian packages in Debian
- as long as we ship these packages in Tails
- until the EOL of the last Debian stable release (including
LTS) we put it in, even if we drop the package from Tails:
including a package in a stable Debian release implies
a commitment to maintain it during its lifetime.
- [Maintain a bunch of packages](https://udd.debian.org/dmd/?email1=&email2=&email3=&packages=libgsecuredelete+libotr+mat+nautilus-wipe+onioncircuits+onionshare+pidgin-otr+seahorse-nautilus+torsocks&ignpackages=&format=html#todo).
- [Review and sponsor a few more packages](https://udd.debian.org/dmd/?email1=&email2=&email3=&packages=bilibop+keyringer&ignpackages=&format=html#todo).
- Track Debian bugs and forward them upstream.
- Role: being the fallback, on behalf of Tails, to ensure these packages are
well maintained in Debian (it's OK, and even great, if other pkg-privacy
members do part of the work).
- Tasks:
- [Maintain a bunch of packages](https://udd.debian.org/dmd/?email1=&email2=&email3=&packages=libgsecuredelete+libotr+mat+nautilus-wipe+onioncircuits+onionshare+pidgin-otr+seahorse-nautilus+torsocks&ignpackages=&format=html#todo).
- [Review and sponsor a few more packages](https://udd.debian.org/dmd/?email1=&email2=&email3=&packages=bilibop+keyringer&ignpackages=&format=html#todo).
- Track Debian bugs and forward them upstream.
- Duration:
- as long as we ship these packages in Tails
- until the EOL of the last Debian stable release (including
LTS) we put it in, even if we drop the package from Tails:
including a package in a stable Debian release implies
a commitment to maintain it during its lifetime.
- The Debian BTS is the primary interface to communicate expectations to the
person who wears this hat. GitLab is another option but we should *not* rely
on it for proper tracking & clear communication of expectations.
- Not in the scope of this work:
* [Debian AppArmor team](https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?email=pkg-apparmor-team%40lists.alioth.debian.org)'s packages:
* Perl libraries our custom software depends on: intrigeri does it
