Sorry Reinhard, I'm a bit confused which package you're talking about -- 
"glmark2" or "libdvdcss-pkg"? You quoted one bug but posted to another...

If it is glmark2 it is easy enough to fix if you're concerned about team's 
best practice. Is this so important because of team preference?
In SVN we usually track only packaging. I think choosing git shouldn't always 
imply git-buildpackage repository layout...

Please help me to understand -- because I'm not sure what package you're 
talking about. Do we need at least one team member to back it up?
Or would you insist on minimum two members?

Although glmark2 is finished I'm a bit reluctant to take responsibility for it 
at this time but I might do it later.
Package "glmark2" is much related to multimedia and appears to be a good fit 
for a team. Does it make sense to move it to collab-maint for some time? Even 
if not maintained now, it's a new package so perhaps it's not too important 
where it is waiting for maintainer while it is not uploaded yet.

It feels a bit like "finish it or leave"... Speaking about finishing, did you 
have a chance to try it? Do you think it is useful despite failure of some 
opengl (but not opengl-es) tests? If so I'm happy to own ITP even though it 
might not be a right time for me.

Thank you.
