Hi all,

As you know, the REUSE project aims to make Free Software licensing
easier and clearer, especially for developers. Our tool automates a lot
of processes around that:

To make it easier, people can install it via pip, but we are not present
in multiple popular distributions' package repositories. Right now, it's
Arch Linux (through AUR), Fedora, and OpenSUSE (in an old version).

Is someone here who could help us get REUSE tool packaged for e.g.
Debian, Ubuntu, NixOS etc? I'm looking forward to collaborate on that :)
