This was a humble attempt to cure enough of the bugs in the debian packages of PLT Scheme that they are allowed into the next stable release.
The first task is to get to know the debian package, which can be done via these links.
- Debian package development summary page for drscheme
- PLT Scheme home page
Next I intend to compile a list of tasks that I think need doing. Feel free to email me and offer to help out.
- Familiarise myself with the current drscheme package source
- Squash all bugs
- Send fixes upstream if required
- Port the package build system to the released source, if possible
- Package all libraries
I'll try to keep track of what I've been doing recently here:
Odd version numbering
I replied to this bug report, as I can't see how to map PLT Scheme version numbers onto debian ones. Can you ?
