I agree. I'm available and willing. I'm just not a DD nor am I
familiar with debians sbuild or buildds.

I'm available at OFTC on #debian-glibc. I act as a debian-hppa porter
and help Aurelian when glibc hppa issues arise.

familiar with libc since I'm the upstream ports maintainer for hppa.
I don't think there is any trap.
