Am joined to the lists. 

Am looking through guidelines.

I maintain packages at pkg-perl.  I'm familiar with the
basics of git, quilt, and the dh scripts, so if someone can
help me get started, I will probably be able handle most of
the updating.

My immediate questions are:

1) The app, mma, is not in your repository. Is that
something I can introduce?

2) I seem to recall that a debian package does not
include all the files used to create it. If so,
is there a source for the original package? (The
source code package, perhaps?)

Pointer to appropriate references will be welcome.
