Hi, my name is João Eriberto Mota Filho.

  Please, call me Eriberto.

  I am Brazilian and a Debian Developer. My official site is here.

  My main focuses are packaging and help new maintainers.

  Thanks for visiting. See below some interesting itens.




My fake packages for debian/watch:

To avoid a false impression that you ignored the watch file by laziness and to inform an actual status, I created three fake packages. These packages say if there no upstream site, if there no release in upstream site or if the upstream site there a package but doesn't allow track it (using a JavaScript to block it, for example).

Some people are using my fake packages and you can see the results in my DDPO. Look at 0.No-Site, 0.No-Release and 0.No-Track.

Feel free if you want to use this solution.

  * debian/watch: added a fake site to explain about the current
     status of the original upstream homepage.
