The Debian Janitor is a project to automate the making of certain changes to Debian packages.

The project started sending out pull requests for simple issues reported by Lintian at the end of 2019; since then, more than 3000 automated changes have been merged into packaging repositories.

This talk will focus on architecture of the Janitor and plans to extend it beyond fixes for Lintian issues.
