I'm starting the process of becoming a Debian Devrloper/Maintainer.
Many of the orphaned packages, while being orphaned due to workload, are
no longer even being developed ir maintained upstream. for example, the
various gnome packages such as gnome-debug, gnome-audio (which has a
completly new upstream version), and many others.
The same appears to be true for ITA packages and others.
As a prospective new developer, I'm curios what package would be really
goods to strt with. Many of the ITA and ITP packages are still not
packaged by the NMU from what I can tell. bugsx doesn't appear to even
have an upstream developer...maybe it should be removed???
anyway, I am interested in gnome and php4, but don't want to go down a
dead end path.
PS: I will be packaging my own software as I develop it for sure :-)
