I have just added you to the team on alioth. Welcome! PureData has been
neglected a bit in Debian, it is good to see you and Hans starting to
take an interest in it.

First import the packages in the team's git repository (and be sure to
enable the commit notifications to the pkg-multimedia-commits list).
Also, read our wiki page for some details regarding how we usually
handle packaging (wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia).

I could "sponsor" your packages after you have imported them into the
git repository (I don't have time right now, ping again when you have
done this).
