Thanks for the precious informations. I rather work through a team and
build long-term cooperation, rather than though sponsors. I can work
with the Python-app team and the pkg-multimedia team.

Yes, I am member of team since of few days only. I've been a free
software developers for years, and a big fan of Debian and Ubuntu,
So yes, I want to work with the Debian Multimedia team.

Well, I would rather stick with CDBS for now, since it works for this
package. I tried to switch to debhelper 7, but it didn't work at the

Wow! I am very impressed by the list of packages you are working on. I
would be very happy to work with you for this package! My long-time
will is to become a DD, mostly for multimedia.
For this scenic package, I will release the 0.5.11 tag in a few hours
today. (I'm in Montreal, so my time zone is -0400) My packaging is
pretty much ready and our big app is very stable right now. I think
there is not much work left to do.
You can find me on the #debian-multimedia IRC channel, if you want.
