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.
So, 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. That's All! Jeremy On Sun, Jun 12, 2011 at 8:56 PM, Jonas Smedegaard <d...@jones.dk> wrote: > On 11-06-12 at 07:38pm, Jeremy Salwen wrote: > > 1.
