As said above: I for one would be perfectly fine to offer this kind of mentoring
to you. I'm not sure whether you had ever had a negative answer to such a
request for mentorship - have you ever asked for it (before)?
I had a mentor for about a year when I first started packaging. His
responses to my occasional emails were invaluable, but we lost touch
last year when he moved jobs/email addresses. There is a huge difference
between reading debian-policy (or the wiki, or whatever other resource),
and having someone bring it to life applied to your own work.
At the start of this year I asked for a new mentor, on both
debian-mentors and (after nobody replied) on debian-devel-games. I
have 'joined' the games team on IRC, and have been told that the way to
get a sponsor is to do outstanding packaging tasks on other games. Since
I'm not yet good enough at packaging to do this, I have tried to
contribute to the wiki instead, though this has been stalled by RL
over the summer.
I would very much appreciate your help. May I email you?
