As I mentioned when Debian-Med adopted adun.app, I absolutely lack
knowledge/skills for the "med" part (naturally, I don't purport that
my GNUstep knowledge is superior, either).

I have a personal rule not to attempt to maintain packages I don't
use, because practice shows me that a Debian maintainer is far more
than a packaging bot.  You have to know what the software does or is
supposed to do from a user perspective, and that implies using the
package on a regular basis.

I'm breaking this rule slightly as I don't use your GNUstep packages
(although I have them installed on all my machines and play with them
from time to time), but I'd like to keep this as an exception.

I have subscribed to debian-med-packaging and debian-med-commit and
will keep an eye on things I can help with.  I'm already subscribed to
the PTS of all GNUstep packages under your control.  But don't rely on
me for the rest of the (complicated and specialized) stuff you
maintain, please :-)

I also noticed that you have a policy [1] which appears to be
completely in line with the advices you gave me.  I'll read it and try
to stick to it -- if I fail, beat me.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
