My names Andrew (from UK). Im interested in helping out with the Debian Edition, either tracking bugs, packaging or whatever needs doing. Is there a way for new people to get involved or is it only open to a select few?
My personal view is that the Debian (Gnome) edition is the way forward. Although choice is good Im concerned that there is so much choice in the Linux world that newcomers are overwhelmed with options to the point of being put off.
For example a Windows user looking to try out Linux Mint for the first time is presented with no fewer than 6 versions to choose from! As well as confusing new users it also surely dilutes developers efforts maintaining 6 versions instead of putting all their energy into one.
Anyway that aside, Im keen to help out if I can. If Clem and the others want to have a chat and get to know me feel free to contact me.
