in the above post as reasons for a lists.debian.org
mailing list and have also updated the bug report at
I feel that the name of the said list should be
debian-india@... as the name of this
community as we all know from 2005 is 'Debian India',
also a India specific list for Debian need not further
classify anyone as a user or developer.
The purpose of the debian-india List should be as follows:
1) Answer general Debian related queries both technical
and licensing related queries.
2) Mentoring new Indian Debian Contributers.
3) Debian Indic Localisation.(What debian-in-workers is doing now).

debian-in-workers. Contributing to debian need not be only via Indic
support or Indic packages. debian-india will be a gateway to debian
for people from India, but debian-in-workers should remain as a
pcakging team for Indic packages.
You have to keep reminding your government that you don't get your
rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
