Yeah, I might put it a bit stronger than that. :)

Please consider joining:
debian-multimedia at lists.debian.org

We seem to be building a 'Debian multimedia strike force' or something 
like that here. Debian actually has a relatively small number of 
multimedia/audio devs and it is necessary for non-DDs to take on a 
considerable amount of the work. Debian-multimedia can effectively 
co-maintain or sponsor NMUs, which I think is what we're doing with the 
new version of Rosegarden4. It's early days yet. Debian-multimedia seems 
to be a good meeting point for DeMuDi, UbuntuStudio and pure Debianites 
to work from. There is some very interesting potential here and it would 
be great to have you on board.
