Hi Robert,

Great to hear and thank you for offering to help out.

As we are in the final stages of a release some of us are quite busy
concentrating on getting it out the door but when everything settles
down again in a couple weeks it will be the perfect time to help bring
on board new packagers.

I'd be happy to help you find your feet in Mageia, but I'm afraid I
won't be much use until after the final release is out!

Either way, looking forward to welcoming a new packager.
