I have read the materials regarding becoming a
package maintainer and have chosen an orphaned
package. However, either I don't quite
understand the correct order of things or there is
an inconsistency in the new maintainer docs. My
money is on the former.
The question is: which do I do first, announce my
intentions to debian-devel or submit a new main-
tainer application? The application seems to want
me to announce. Other docs seem to indicate
that I should become a maintainer first.
I appreciate any guidance here.
