Well, that's kind of a formalised teaching method but we have taught
newcomers also without this formalism.

So lets start right now.

I prefer e-mail.

The link to cap3 is at the end of this mail[2].  If I would have a link
to the license I would have provided it.  The page contains a source
code archive but I have not seen any link to a license.  Part of the
Debian developer work is to do research (may be by contacting the
authors) to find out the license.

Let me know about success or failure.

I did not received any application message via the Gitlab interface
but I've manually added you to the project.

You are welcome.  I think the first task is to create a Git archive for
cap3 now and inject the source archive.  Please let me know whether you
see any blockers here.

Kind regards
