Wasn't Angus Lees doing that for Debian?

I think I tried emailing him a while back, but got no reply.

I use Debian, but I have never gotten into the Debian build and test 
process. I'm an experienced developer, but there seems to be another 
level of really "hard core" developer that is way above me in terms of 
knowledge - they seem to know all the ins and outs of system level stuff 
and compiler switches etc which I've just never had to learn, so haven't.

But if there is nobody else around who can do this package maintenance 
for Embperl/Debian, then I guess I could start trying to learn... it's 
important enough to me, since I use both extensively. But it might make 
sense for someone who had access to more hardware variations than I do 
(Debian works on many different architectures, after all). Eh, I really 
know very little about that stuff. Software got very very complicated! 
It was so much simpler back when I was doing 6502 assembler.
