AOL!  Thanks Jeremiah for this introduction mail.

Absolutely yes. I'm a N900 owner and user myself although I confess I've
never took the time to look under the hood at the packaging level to
check how much it's close to Debian or not. Nonetheless, if Maemo folks
are interested in giving back some of their changes to Debian, be it for
making their maintenance activities easier or for benefiting other users
of Debian-based distro, please talk to us. The debian-derivatives
mailing list is the right place where you can find advice on who to
contact to better integrate your changes into Debian proper.

Thanks for your interest in Debian,
