Thank you Ryan for replying. I would try my hands on Debian packaging. If
went to the link you mentioned. I'll read through the entire documentation
as mentioned in the table of contents.
I didn't understood what to regarding this line that you said "The process
for becoming a Debian maintainer, to my knowledge, involves doing some
reviews for other packages, finding a mentor, and then finally once that is
done mlpack can be submitted and reviews by other Debian maintainers and
developers." Where can I do or rather find the mentor. Is it included in
the documentation link (I've just started reading it and is bit lengthy)?
Please fell free to reply me regarding this whenever you have time.
