I'm very interested in having such an multimedia track. However, I'm not
sure if I have the required experience to drive such an track. Moreover,
I'm already hard at my time limit I can devote to debian tasks, and I'm
not sure how much time this task requires, I'd very much prefer to
assist rather than to drive such an track all alone.  In any case,
please keep me in the loop about this efford!
