I just want to commend whoever is packaging TexLive.

My last update covered March of this year - no mean feat given that it is a 3.4GB package aggregate.

(sorry I cant do more direct contributions for Guix atm, looking forward to such an honour eventually)

Hi Guix,

this is not a new idea[1]: let’s add a page to the website that lists teams
and a mail alias for each of the teams.

For example, the “R team” consists of people familiar with how R
packaging works in Guix, e.g. Simon and myself. There would be an alias
“”.  People with questions about R in Guix could
write an email to that alias.

Mumi could also send email to to remind them about
patches relating to R / Bioconductor / CRAN, etc.

Maintainers could write to these teams before releases to ask if there
are any obstacles to a release.

As a first step I’d suggest collecting teams, setting up the email
aliases, and updating the website to show the existing teams.  Here’s
a draft of three teams:

* R team
Simon Tournier
Ricardo Wurmus

* Java team
Julien Lepiller

* Rust team
Efraim Flashner
Aleksandr Vityazev
Arun Isaac
John Soo
Maxim Cournoyer
Nicolas Goaziou
Tobias Geerinckx-Rice

What do you think?
