dear pkg-multimedia team! i'm the upstream author of several multimedia related packages, some of which are already in debian (most prominently "gem" and "pd-zexy").
most (of not all) of these packages are centered around the computer music language "puredata". all of them have originally been packaged by günter geiger, but he seems to have not much time these days, so most of his packages have been orphaned. i volunteered to adopt some of these packages (that are relevant for me: "puredata", "gem",...), but since i'm no DD/DM they have eventually been adopted by paul brossier (piemdebian). since he has not so much time either, i'm currently helping him with packaging both "puredata" and "gem" (e.g. the packages currently in squeeze have been done by me). no i noticed that another of my upstream software has been orphaned as well ("pd-zexy") and i would like to adopt the package. talking with hans-christoph steiner (who's on this list as well), he meant that i should ask you (the pkg-multimedia-team) to join you and then adopt the package as a team. this would hopefully make the complicated task of finding a sponsor each time i want to update a package more simple. as a start i have updated the "pd-zexy" package to the most recent upstream release (2.2.3). even though i have access to the "collab-maint" group on alioth (my username being "zmoelnig-guest"), i have decided to first push the package to github (http://github.com/umlaeute/pd-zexy resp. git://github.com/umlaeute/pd-zexy.git) i would be thankful if i could join your team (willing to invest time especially around the packaging of "puredata" related software). if someone could review my package (currently i have noted myself as "maintainer", this of course could be changed to pkg-multimedia) and think it's ok, i could push it to alioth. i would be thankful if someone could sponsor a package upload. what do you think? fmgasdr IOhannes PS: i'm currently subscribing to this list
