Hi Jonas,

I'm confused, because there seem to be two standards by which one might join
the Debian Multimedia Maintainers team.  The first seems to be an informal
one, by which someone who has created a couple of debian packages is invited
to join (Alessio extended to me a similar offer).  If I thought this were
the final word, I would be happy to join.  However, when I go to the website
to look into joining, I find a second set of standards, including the items:

   - are familiar with managing bugs in debian.
   - agree to review other's work (patches and packages).

Neither of which I am okay with.  I am not familiar with managing bugs in
debian.  I simply don't know how to do anything besides send an email to the
bug report.

As for the second point, I suppose I could technically review others' work,
but it probably wouldn't be much of a review.  Much of this stuff is over my
head.  If I were to look at the source of Ardour, for instance, it would
probably take me a week to make heads or tails of it.
