Hi Kaj,

Now that Debian has been released, I should have some more time to help
out with Ubuntu Studio.

I had managed to get 1 or 2 manual test cases merged (thanks to Elfy)
before I got busy in Debian, and am happy to kick that work off again.
I think it might be a good idea that we make sure all of our packages
are running any upstream unit tests at build time, and create some
autopkgtests for packages that are missing them (I have some more
learning to do for this last bit though).

I have managed to get some syncs/merges, SRU's and backports sponsored
in the past, and I would be very happy to help out with packaging & bug
fixing. My application development skills are pretty poor, and I never
seem to find the time to work on that :-)

I am also happy to continue with the work to categorise packages with
debtags and desktop files.
