        Allows you to "install" Debian's base on a given directory
        anywhere on the filesystem.  Combined with a chroot and
        build-essential, this makes for a nice way to have a clean
        environment where you can build your packages.

 (yes, my description of pbuilder is different from yours)

            The Developer's Corner.  Contains links and on-line versions
            of the stuff I mentioned before.

            The Work Needing and Prospective Packages list.  Sort of a
            big TODO list for Debian packaging stuff: what's orphaned,
            what needs new maintainers, what's being adopted, what's
            being packaged and what would be nice to have packaged.

            The Debian Quality Assurance headquarters.  Help is welcomed!

 I actually tell people they must subscribe (the DAM subscribes them to
 -private when they become maintainers, doesn't he?)

 Mention -mentors, too.
