Let's supose I want to fix a bug. I'll take #484855 [0] as an example, as I 
filled it myself (I am _not_ saying I will fix it, that would be awesome, but 
what I want is to start learning the steps to become useful round here :-) )

I do not know the steps neede to do this, but I imagine something like:

* Download the src package
* As this is a depend bug, I need to change the ¿control? [1] file of the 
package to add the correct depends.
* Re make the package and send it to a sponsor (I am not a DD as you may all 
have already guessed :-) )
* Iterate on the sponsor's reply
* Have the bug fixed, and some fun too :-)
Comments, ideas, RTFMs with proper urls welcomed :-D

[1] I know very little about packaging, but I can ask Marga Manterola for some 
howtos and/or doc. Of course, if you can and will, you can provide me with 
that too.
