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. -- Ritesh Raj Sarraf RESEARCHUT - http://www.researchut.com "Necessity is the mother of invention."
