Re: More contributors welcome to MariaDB packaging in Debian



I would like to know more about the packaging project-it's current state
and what exactly remains to be done.

I was looking at the previous year's ideas page and there was no mention of
the difficulty of the project. Could I know which projects would be good
for someone with intermediate programming skills?

Additionally, I am looking to participate in this year's GSoC program. So,
would MariaDB be applying?
