20 Helping out on packages that don't get much attention could be
21 gratifying. I don't think I'd mind that, depending on how difficult the
22 packages are to maintain. :p
24 I really don't know which teams or areas I'm interested in. I think my
25 current skills predispose me to documentation or tree cleaning. Sunrise
26 sounds interesting too, as does QA. I think I'd have to try my hand at
27 them to determine if I'd be useful to those projects.
29 Gaming is fairly important to me, too... I could help add or maintain
30 games that'll run on Gentoo. It's really a blank slate to me.
32 On that note, I spent early morning today completing the ebuild quiz.
33 I'm not sure if it's ready for review yet, or what I need to do to
34 submit it. Guess I'll have to look that up, too. :)
