Alright, I have read through both URLs as directed, and have a pretty
good understanding of how it all works, and the target audiences. I'm
going to be in #packagekit as the user "essial" and I will message you
when you sign in.
As far as what I want to work on -- I'm not really picky; I can fix
bugs, work on new features, create/update/maintain utilities, etc;
Anything that will help further this project along. I think it's great
that a group is trying to fix the packaging problem once and for all
(and that distros are jumping on the bandwagon). Just let me know what
areas needs the most care and I'll dig into that.
