Hello Jonas, 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.

I've been a free software developers for years, and a big fan of Debian and Ubuntu, though. So yes, I want to work with the Debian Multimedia team. > >> I use cdbs, but I am ready to switch to debhelper 7 if we fix some issues >> I had with it.

Well, I would rather stick with CDBS for now, since it works for this package.

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.
