I'm not in any packaging team at time, so what does it mean to make it available in a public git repo? It's actually a very small packaging project, so I don't use any VCS for it. I'm in contact with upstream, but he seems to be very busy and unable to fix all issues (also some regarding programming) at time. (And I miss deeper knowledge of projectM) If the package is reviewed I could help in any way to make the pkg available via Git.
