Welcome to the GetDeb Team
This Wiki main purpose is to provide you some insight on the GetDeb team works and how you can get involved into it.
Who are we

Develop the Automated Build System used to build the packages from source;
Maintain the GetDeb infrastructure.
Develop the apt-portal content management system that is used for playdeb
