As long as you enjoy the stuff you maintain, you should do it. And you
would only enjoy it when you taste it. :-)

So I too try a similar approach, and try to package things that I use/enjoy.

And like you Bala, I too try to collaborate on the maintenance. Many of
my packages are under collab-maint. The good culture in Debian is that
you can contribute to packages even without being its maintainer. In
fact, you can contribute to Debian, even without being a DD. :-)

And yes, congratulations on this milestone.
