keysigning, debian packaging met git, hoe word je een debian contributor, mutt (was: Re: Your signed PGP key)

Hi Dmitry,

Cc-ing list since answers to questions about how to get started as a Debian
contributor, or working with PGP, might be interesting to others too.

Debian User Dutch-subscribers: excuses dat deze mail in het Engels is.  Dmitry
woont in Nederland maar schrijft makkelijker Engels dan Nederlands, geloof ik.
Ik ontmoette hem op de Debian Bug Squashing Party, onlangs in Tilburg.  Cc mij
en Dmitry op replies aub; ik ben niet ge-abonneerd op deze lijst.

Thanks!  Will process it later, and sign your key later.  Please remind
me if I fail to do that within about 1 week.

OK, nice.

Yes, finding a DM is easier once you can show some work you've done for Debian.
BTW, you don't need a sponsor to do Debian-work: you can e.g. create a .deb and
publish that work on e.g. your own website.  You can also apply for an account
on alioth.debian.org, and start contributing to work there, using e.g. git.

Yup, that's a good way to enter.

mutt with GnuPG.  If you 'apt install mutt' on a Debian system, the
gnupg-integration works out of the box, iirc.

Take care, Bye,
