I might be interesting to learn _how_ they started to contribute /
got their first package uploaded.


Qn: How did you learn to create your first package (e.g. by reading
Lucas' packaging guide, by starting at a teams wiki page, ...) and
how did you get it uploaded (e.g. by joinig a team, by mailing
debian-mentors, ...)? What was helpful during these steps, and what
did you miss?
