It's ok. We all gotta start somewhere and the Studio team knew next to
nothing when it started. ;)

So as long as you're "really serious" about learning and being part of
the team we'd love to have your help.

The position would be making sure key packages are up-to-date in the
development repo and getting them backported.

This will mean becoming part of 3 teams in the end. Ubuntu Studio, MOTU
and backports team. Sounds harder than it it. Just takes the desire.

Pidgin can do it rather easily. There are many HOWTOs online.
