Yes, you did. ;-)

BTW, you can sent to Debian lists without beeing subscribed.

Hmmm, I did not received any membership request.  But I added user
shafeenr to the team.  BTW, your mail user agent claims your name is
Mohammed - I hope I will not wrongly spell your name in the beginning of
some mail due to this. ;-)

If you are interested in packaging something new you might probably want
to look in my packaging workshop[3] once the video is online (and only
than - the slides are *intentionally* not very helpful since I'm doing
the packaging at request and the run of the workshop develops out of the
software that was requested).

You can also learn packaging in a Mentoring of the Month project[4].  In
case you are informed about packaging you can also try to fix some bugs
against packages of the Debian Med team[5]
