»Why and How to (Not) get your project packaged in distributions (in Portuguese)«
2019-08-03, 16:25–17:05, Radisson Lisboa

Getting your project packaged by distributions gives you benefits like making it easier and safer for users to get your software, having distributions automated QA check your project and its dependencies, and ensuring the portability of your project to architectures other than x86. In this talk, we will review these and other reasons why you would want your project to be packaged by distributions, and how to make it easier for that to happen. There are, however, cases where being packaged by distributions doesn't make sense or isn't really practical, and we will also discuss what to do then. The approach will be mostly biased by the speaker's experience as an upstream developer and as a member of the Debian project, but almost all of the advice applies to all distributions.
