I see. It certainly make sense to have a group taking care of all the
GNUstep packages,
since GNUstep is so unique in so many ways that it defines a policy of it's

Of course. I would like to state that I will in no way bypass or fail to
inform the current maintainer;
everthing will be done according with Policy, in the end I would like to be
an extra pair of hands
helping with the overall effort.

I've already set up the page to provide
general information. 

As soon as I upload anything it will be there along with the source line for
apt and general remarks.

Please bear with me a couple of days as I recently lost my /home partition
with everything in it. The
things I have are from a rather old backup, but I will work on it this

Also note that due to the lost partition I have also lost my gpg key (yes, I
did have backups on floppy, but due to my
laziness in labeling them they were overwrited with an Alpha boot disk and a
GNU/Hurd boot disk :P) so my packages
will not match my Debian keyring gpg key. I will produce a new key and have
it sign by a Debian Devel this month.
