In general, I could use a mentor I can ask questions of and get answers

wanting to be more involved.
I have been using the Developer Guide for assistance.
But specifically for now...
I requested to fill the maintainer role needed for the app-misc/gramps
package as I use the software for my own needs and am fairly familiar
with it. I am now the maintainer of that package. I find I can use some
guidance in getting started. For instance, there is a bug to have
gramps-4.2.4 stable (it is ~amd64 ~x86 now).
I have been running gramps-4.2.4 OK on amd64, testing various components
and reports OK
To stabilize this package for amd64 and x86 it would also need to be
verified on x86. I suppose I could do that myself by creating an x86
virtual guest and testing or I should ask for assistance via a bug to
Also, when I run 'repoman full' from the proposed ebuild directory I get
QA issues for RDEPEND for dev-python/pyicu, which is also ~amd64. This
dependent package (and its dependencies) would need to be stable as
When it comes time to commit (repoman commit), do I need any user access
set up before I commit?
