Hey Brian,

Thanks for the desktop work you are doing! Do you have a list of the 
packages you worked on so far? I know you are interested in empathy and 
helped Ken on it, what else did you work on? You mentioned wanted to 
apply for MOTU as well, what sort of work would you be interested to do 
in both sets?

Getting ubuntu-desktop membership gives direct commit and upload access 
to most of what constitute the Ubuntu Desktop so we tend to be cautious. 
To me it seems you are doing a good job so far but you only worked on a 
limited set of component and I would prefer if you could get a bit more 
experience, especially dealing with things like libraries (soname 
changes, .symbols handling), conffiles, new source or binaries, etc 
before applying for desktop. It shouldn't be hard to find sponsors for 
your desktop work either.

Does that make sense to you?

Let me know if you feel like you already have the skills needed and that 
I'm overlooking work you did (which is possible, I don't manage to 
follow everything going on around ;-)
