Dear Amaya,
	I'm in no position to sponsor his packages, since I'm still
awaiting DAM approval (11 months and counting). I was hoping that by
joining the NM process, he would be able to find a better candidate
(French speaking perhaps?) to help him learn the ropes of Debian (and
advocate/sponsor, if he takes the plunge). It's pretty much the best I
can do in my situation. I don't want to abandon my ITP on Agnubis
altogether if he's not committed, and the only measure I have to go so
far is a two month old unfinished ITP that happens to be an Agnubis
dependency. I'm more than happy to give an aspiring Debian developer a
break, since I know what's it's like starting out, not to mention
opportunities to package promising and prominent (GNOME-office in this
case) projects are rare these days.

Yours sincerely,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
