Sounds good to me.

I also digged out some mails from the archive with subject "closing down
debian-multimedia alioth project and l.d.o list", dating back to April

I never noticed there was still traffic on debian-multime...@l.d.o.

Anyway, make this the place for users and keep
pkg-multimedia-maintainers for "internal" discussion.

Also note that we should change the maintainer address in the following


If we want to make debian-multimedia a place for users anytime soon,
we'd probably need to change all those packages upfront, IOW, before we
release squeeze.

I'm not entirely sure the release team is happy if we'll upload 17
packages just because of a maintainer's email address change, but given
the long release cycle, I see no other way if we want to use
debian-multime...@l.d.o, unless it's acceptable to see a bug reports now
and then on this list.

BTW: Many of these packages are pretty old, e.g. no new upload since
2007 for hexter. They are also not available on git.debian.org. It might
be a good first step for beginners to get some experience with git,
git-buildpackage, team guidelines (multiline fields) and housekeeping in
general to help with these 17 packages. WDYT? ;)
