I've already participated in a BSP (that I organized in Argentina),
this doesn't mean that I'm terribly experienced, but I'm willing to
help with what I may, and also to learn about what I don't know.
Also, you said that previous knowledge about packages is needed... I'm
willing to help with that. Although it's an easy task, I could give a
pre-tutorial on how to download, patch, build and install a package.
Or maybe, I could prepare a small HOWTO somewhere on the web, so
people can read it in advance and then keep it as reference.
