Anybody needs a helper, please contact me.

I started using debian since 2 years ago and definitely love it so much.
And for the last two and a half years I got lots of help from the
debian-user list.
I always think of doing something to return,
Honestly speaking, in the past I was more like a trouble-maker than maintainer.
anyway, I learned and made some slow progress.
Another reason is that, how to say, I am on the edge of becoming 30,
not sure how long I can live in this hello world,
but (positively) possible can still work for the next 30 years? and
hopefully next 50 years?
so in the next 30 years or at least following years I wish I can do some help.
Yesterday I checked wnpp-alert.
Several packages gotta my interest,
but I am not so confident after careful considerations, which involved
the number of users and possible problems may emerge in future.
Here, suppose someone who needs an assistant with small things, I am
really willing to start earlier.

I finished my email, thanks for your time,

Best regards,

lina
