I am also new to the MOTU mailing list, and looking to contribute some
packages etc when i can on the weekends, your videos on youtube were
really good.

I am currently making some small patches for rhythmbox but i would like
to contribute to MOTU soon after for something to do on the weekends not
working :P. 

Kind of proprotary hacker by day, linux hacker by night :P.

Anyways, i have a blog on
And some of my work tho some of the code i have up needs updated cause
its old and makes me look stupid! But what i would like to contribute to
MOTU is some kvm packages/libvirt as i work alot of kvm recently, and
some small i mean small linux kernel like code cleaning but i havent
submitted it back because i am too nervous of breaking everything
yet! :) but i just need more practice

But i think like with my rhythmbox patches i will start ...pretty small
packages like the tutorials you have and then see what goes from
there :)

I hope to start annoying you guys with some packaging questions soon
