As many are probably aware, the Monero protocol recently updated. This would be fine, except there were misplaced transactions in the blockchain, causing many nodes to become locked. Looking at the speed of the Whonix repository, it appears that it takes some amount of time to push packages through, I saw it happen with the initial release of 0.17, and now it appears it will happen again with the patch coming upstream from the Monero core team.
I am wanting to start contributing more to open source, so I am wondering if it is possible to contribute to package management after I figure out how this works. How are packages handled in Whonix? Can you push packages at any time, providing they meet any internal standards, or is it more complex?
Where should I start?
