No problem.  Good to hear.  I had a feel about you reading ML.

Oh, you could have said "sorry I am busy, but I want to do this please
wait".   I will be happy editing my package while waiting.

Understood.  No reply was bud choice, though.  We all know we have life
outside of Debian and volunteer organization can be stretched thin.

Good for you.

I see. 

I can certainly be sure I am not up for any core binary packages.

But I had my name in maintainer field of "printtool" package at one time
in woody testing cycle (mostly TCL and shell).  Yes this was mistake in
official maintainer. So I am open for packaging some utility packages
and would like to be tested for that "tasks & skills".

Anyway, as you said before this doc maintainer test is new and takes
time to get ready.  Just drop us a message once a month telling us you are
working on it :)  I will wait.
