Okay fine, You've convinced me. I've subscribed to the mailing lists, but
directed them to a folder I'll check from time to time.
1. I have an alioth account called jeremysalwen-guest
2. I've subscribed to the mailing lists
3. I'm not scared of Debian bugs
4. I'm happy to help anyone when I have the time.
A little about myself:
My name is Jeremy Salwen, and I like to program audio processing software.
When doing audio stuff I mainly write in C, or possibly with a little C++.
In particular, I've written a few simple programs and some plugins, but
mainly I find myself porting other peoples' software to the LV2 plugin
format (which I really like, by the way), As I almost always write software
to scratch a particular itch or interest of mine, I like to think that my
software would be useful to other people, which is why I started getting
involved with packaging my own and other peoples' software for debian. I
use git-buildpackage + quilt to make my packages.
