Re: Hoping to be of use (as well as getting my packages uploaded....)
Thanks for the welcome.
Do you mean you have never needed to apply for developershipness?
Not everything I am interested in is a perl module (or even perl) so I
might have to.

I've never heard of the CPAN packages you are planning to upload, but
if they're useful to you, they're likely to be useful to others, and I
think it will simultaneously be a great boost to Debian as well as the
We are fortunate to have many DDs that can provide a thorough review
of your package and, given your apparently high standards for
packaging, I have no doubts we'll be able to upload your stuff. (As a
sidenote, while being a DD may be currently part of your plan, and is
certainly a good goal to have, I am still not a DD and have been able
to accomplish quite a bit -- 400+ Perl packages currently bear my
name. This group is one that allows many non-DDs to contribute in a
meaningful way, and many of those people do eventually become DDs too)

developers reference and certainly those bits I needed to get clean lintian
