FWIW, I see your contributions to this project are basically over the
past five weeks.


It also springs to my attention that you want to maintain Docker.io; I
agree the package looks like it could use some love, but it somehow
feels you haven't yet got the grip of how current-day Debian
collaboration works - There is a Docker packaging team you could
join. Docker.io was last updated on on October (so, half a year
ago). Have you considered joining the Docker-maint team?

Note that I *completely* agree with your assessment that it needs love
- But your statement suggests a "hostile takeover". Please start by
getting in touch with the maintainer / uploaders, mentioned in the
package's tracker:


Docker-maint has a mailing list, which until now had half-decent


But sadly, as it was hosted in Alioth, the last announcement (sent
today) is basically closing it down:


So, a good way for you to build more Debian skills is to join forces
with the team and find Docker.io some new loving in Salsa, fixing some
of its most salient bugs (it has 5 RCs), and... That would be great to
show on your DD application! ;-)
