I'm a maintainer hopeful and have some years behind me also.
That being said, I am looking at this 2 fold.
1. To develop my programming skills
2. The main point, to gain a much better understanding about Debian
AND, the challenge!!!
You need to keep yourself challenged in life. It's what helps to make
life in exciting!
So - I don't feel that age is a matter as long as you can learn and
don't have hang ups about taking compliments and criticism from younger
and almost certainly more knowledgeable folks!
That's just me though!
