Joining pkg-multimedia team

Hi Ross, thank you!

But I don't find a tutorial that mentions how to upload the public key 
for the git repository. only tells that I should use ssh but 
I get a public key error.

Other issues:
1. The Packaging with Git tutorials says, that I just have to call
      gbp import-dsc /path/to/package_0.1-1.dsc

    It's true, everything is imported but the directory structure is not as
    it is described in the tutorial

      $ ls

    In my case there's no tar.gz file in the repository afterwards and no
    extra directory of my package. Just the files and directories which are
    located inside the my source tree. Also the debian directory shows up
    in the upstream as well as in the master branch. git diff master 
    shows no diffs between master and upstream. The tags are available.

    "The git repository should be hosted in alioth, under the 
    project. It should forward commit messages to
    pkg-multimedia-commits at and
    dispatch+package at"

    I am relatively new to git and I could not find anything in the www. How
    can I do that?

    "Do not commit debian/changelog along with the changes. This 
practice makes
     cherry picking and backporting changes unnecessarily hard."

    How do users and especially testers know what has changed?

    "To indicate that the package is ready for upload, update 
    to include the target distribution"
    I thought I should not commit it?

As you can see, I am a little bit confused right now. Any help is
