That would probably be Sjoerd Simmons <sjoerd at debian.org>. Now that 
Debian 6.0 is out I guess getting stuff in that way will be easier, 

Btw, we all seem to be busy with our own stuff only, but we all would 
like others to test the stuff we do, so do you want to make a deal? :-) 
I'll test some of your patches (tell me which ones) if you test my 
pulse-mixer patches.
