Hey! Congrats, that's hard to get out of. Glad you made it!
I'll go and have a look at them as well in a minute, thanks for the
various ideas. Hopefully I'll even be able to do something useful and help
out everyone whilst I'm at it. :-)
If anyone has useful suggestions of things to work on/help with much
appreciated and so forth.
Lars gave you a couple of good ideas, I would like to add my couple of
suggestions too. I find these tasks easy, fun and rewarding:
1 - There is a pseudo package, named base, that gets bug reports from
users taht do not really know where to report them. Feel free to
browse this list and reassing bugs apporpiately:
2 - There is an ongoing transition that is a lot of fun. The package
xlibs-dev has dissapeared from unstable, and there's several other x
libraries that replace it. So the task is to see all the packages
that build-depend on xlibs-dev and find out the right
build-dependencies for them, and send a patch. This only requires
reading http://wiki.debian.org/DependsXlibsDev and knowing pbuilder.
There is a link on the wiki to a script that eases the task quite a
Huzzah! I've come out of my depression long enough to write some emails!
