Hi and welcome!
I'm a 23 year old Debian user based in Edinburgh. I've been using
my operating system of choice since approximately 2003. I'm
with creating and making packages as I do so for work. (We're a
in Edinburgh, Scotland.)
"Packaging" and "perl" are keywords that make me reply :)
Heh - that is what we do around here it seems. :-)
Also, if you have been doing those things I am certain you will find
a way to contribute immediately, those are the skills people use
around here to keep packages in shape.
I have to say this is a great group of people I have met through this
list. Very knowledgeable and helpful. There is always something you
can do to help out, there is lots of "hands on" work and because it
is a team there is help when you run into trouble.
I work with Perl professionally, but mostly the Debian
Perl Team seem pretty tight and on top of things...
I think the perl packages are in rather good shape but there's always
some work to do -- fixing bugs, integrating new upstream releases,
creating new packages where RFPs (requests for packaging) have been
filed. And the number of active members is lower than the number of
"official" members, so we can always need further helping hands; and
working in a team is fun :)
It is always great when someone from the debian-women list joins or
gets more involved. I want to say that this is a great group of
people on the debian-perl list and I think you will really do a lot,
learn a lot, and as gregor says, you'll have fun doing it.
