Hey all,

Last time me and Felix discussed about lintian, his motivation to have a
fresh and new lintian.d.o seemed, to me, to be high, and I recall he was
mostly dealing with questions about how to do it, in particular about
infrastructure. As I said on that time, I'd be glad to provide help and
support should Felix feel the need for some. I'm quite not the best
developer, but I think I could be useful nevertheless!

That very topic about an archive-wide Lintian ran on already uploaded
packages did not occur, though, and I'd be really interested in helping
keeping this feature around, if such help is needed!

Thanks Norbert for opening that thread!

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
