I think I started that thread. At the time the team was pretty small.
Just to be clear, I like the new plan to re-purpose it as a user support
list better than my previous idea of closing it down.

I would like to work on those. I've been meaning to work on packaging and
becoming a DD for many years ... I really wanted to be more involved
this year, but life and DebConf sort of got in the way.
So, I'll try to get caught up on the rest of this thread to see what
others think and have decided. But, if it's still thought to be ok to
keep these packages around, I would like to work on them as a learning
pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list
