Godfrey, I do not remember rejecting your request. The normal steps
are first to send good patches to the project before requesting to
join. You do not need to be on alioth.debian.org to participate to the
development of libccid.
Godfrey, do you participate on the MUSCLE (Movement for Using Smart
Card in a Linux Environment) mailing list ?
I could not find any message from "Godfrey Chung" in my email archives.

Thanks for the notice.
Godfrey, are you a Debian Developer? If not the bug should be an RFP
instead of ITP. But that is a minor point.
