Quite honestly, I'm new here and joined this list because after many
years of using Debian, I'm wondering if I can help out.
Anyway, about the above point, hopefully I am not wrong by saying
this, but if nobody validates it, I don't think it means it is
useless. It can still be a Debian package (or be source that has to
be compiled) ... just not an official one. Perhaps it can be on a
homepage or something (with a good description that will help search
engines find it) and after it gets noticed and used, then finding a
sponsor might be easier?
I'm just saying that sometimes things happen the other way around...
