I am not an actual maintainer of this package, I do not have any sort of
Debian official access.  I simply (like you) found a bug in LMMS years
ago (the desktop file stopped opening the app or something like that)
and brought the package up to speed, and fixed the debian folder to be
much more modern.

i would love for LMMS to get as much love as it can!!  I use the program
a lot and it is dear to my heart :D
