Hi, David.
Thank you for good introduce!
I'll try to help by packaging gmqcc and already have questions :)

What version package will have if it will be based on some commit, i. e.
not on a release tag?

If you have done some work for this package, pls, share it :)
I'll create a git repo in git.debian.org:/git/pkg-games/ if you agree.

Should I do something with wnpp bug? If yes, pls, send me to a guide :)

Should we have IM communication?
