I'll try to do that. But as you can see from my not so prompt reply... sometimes I
cannot be in contact throughout the internet (Sigh!). And currently I'm not
subscribed to debian-devel. I will subscribe as soon as possible... I hope not to
miss anything important.

Well, I've explained a little my situation. However I'm not sure what should I do.
For example I think I could work on a web page, if I get something to write into
:) But I've no time to actually mantain a package, sorry. And for the coordinating
the effort... well I need more infos about. I know something of the debian policy
and distribution, but I can read more. But remember that if you think at a
constant presence of me in Internet... this is not so possible, sorry again.
Sincerely, I would like to volunteer... but I don't want to start doing something
without having actually the time to do that !

Thank you for your offer. I hope that we could have a big Beowulf category inside
Debian software.
