I'm new to Debian
I'm new to contributing to Debian, and given that I work with Perl on a regular basis I'm hoping to contribute in perl-related ways at least initially.
Having looked over the bugs assigned to the Debian Perl group the only one that looked easily solvable and fixable to me right now was #442764, which already has a patch present. (However I've not tested the patch and couldn't NMU right now without a sponsor ..)
So I'm a little stalled. I'd like to contribute to the perl packages in the project, but without being able to upload I'm a little lost.
Are there any perl modules on CPAN that users would particularly appreciate me packaging? I could probably find a sponsor easily enough, and I'm certainly comfortable with actually making Perl packages, having done so locally since the Sarge days. (Initially via dh-make-perl, and later "by hand").
One final question - If I do find a perl package which could be usefully uploaded would I be welcome to ask for membershop/uploaders here? Or should I stick to the traditional debian-mentors route?
