Umm, I initiated that discussion with you, not the other way around,  
remember? I have pasted the email in case you have forgotten.

Hi Tim,

Just wanted to drop you a quick not about the focus for the debmaster.

I realize this discussion might be better had on community forums, I  
wanted to start it here in case all aspects of this discussion was not  
ready for the community lists at the moment.

I see three technical areas, generally speaking, for the debmaster.

	1. Creating packages for maemo
	2. Maintaing tools for packaging and policy for packaging
	3. Helping, along with the webmaster, to create healthy ecosystem of  

Obviously the debmaster ought to be hanging out in the community,  
easily accessible to help with packaging and other related tasks, but  
from that list above, what does the council feel should be a priority?

Recently, Niels suggested we use a tool called dak for the  
repositories. This will take a lot of time, and I don't want the  
community to feel I am not available. I am dividing my time to allow  
for as much community contact as possible - in fact I do maemo stuff  
on the weekends because I know developers are often active then. But I  
would really like a clearer picture of where the pain is, at least  
from the council's point of view. I have got a fairly clear picture  
from the community.
