[Pkg-electronics-devel] Introduction (Hi!)

Hi All,

I'm new to helping with Debian projects but not new to Debian.  Similarly,
I'm not an electrical engineer, but I do have some basic electronics
knowledge and am familiar with some microcontroller platforms (Arduino,
Beagle, Raspberry Pi).  Professionally, I am a .NET developer and I'm a
member of IEEE for several years since my days of studying mathematics in
college.  Had the opportunity to contribute to the student chapter on a few
projects at a sort of technician level.

Saying hello after spending a few hours looking at the current state of the
arduino package.  I'm very glad to see the work being done in salsa to
bring the arduino package up to date.  If I were to make a concrete
contribution there, I would likely create a PR to update that repo to use
Arduino IDE 1.8.8.  Would it be appropriate to make a first attempt at that
and submit it here for review?

Also, I went ahead and submitted a bug report to wnpp to mark the arduino
package as orphaned.  Hopefully that will be a good impetus for the
electronics team to take ownership of the package maintenance, if now is a
good time to start.

Thank you all for your efforts to make Debian happen.

Best regards,
