The first step that I took, which I think was a little mistake, was registering to the debconf-team mailing list about three weeks or so ago. Since then, I receive tuns of emails and have no clue, what so ever, about what people are talking about.

Please don't be discouraged by the number of threads and the ...
vociferousness... of some of the replies. There is always plenty of work to
do, and fresh ideas and talents are always going to be welcome.

I'm sure the local Swiss team can help you feel your way into the local
atmosphere more easily than I can from this distance, but welcome, and feel
free to ask questions!

Are you famiiar with IRC? If so, there are a lot of Debian people on several
of OFTC's channels that can also field questions or help you get a feel for
where you might like to be more involved.

passion takes you.
