> I received recently a mail from Samuel Verschelde asking me to look

> get | grep nobody). Thanks for the reminder !
> I was really surprised of what I found, and I'm pretty sure some people
> have not registered themselves as package maintainer correctly. I can't
> believe we could have a working distribution without people in charge
> (And this is really a list of what looks to me mandatory, I'm sure each
> here will make its own, with differences).
> As much as I'm willing to maintain packages, I don't think I'm the
> most qualified to take some of these. However, a distro without them
> maintained has no future :-(
> So I guess there is something wrong here. Or are we so few that nobody
> want to take these ?
> I'm willing to contribute, already "own" 29 pkgs (but some of these
> because I thought I'd rather take them than leave unmaintained, even if
> surprised) but don't have that much time, nor expertise to add the full
> list !
> Any taker ?
