I am the original author of Apt-Spy (up until ver 2.x) until a friend (Steven Holmes) took it over and did a re-write.
Stephen Stafford was an acquaintance of mine that was maintaining the package, but it seems he has since let it go.
I have two requests :
1. I’d like to pursue becoming a Debian developer/maintainer
2. I’d like to take over Apt-spy and continue its legacy
As far as mentorship goes, I am located in Monmouth County, NJ.
Any help is appreciated.
