Welcome on board. We have a mix of experienced and new packagers in
the group, so don't hesitate to always ask for help there or on irc if
you have questions. (if asking publicly is too intimidating you can
always form a private cabal with other new packagers, it's sometimes
easier to work with people at the same knowledge level).
And we even have some intermediate packagers who are totally ignorant
of how fonts work, but found themselves having to deal with fonts
packaging against their will (ok, maybe I'm a little exagerating :)
I don't have any problem with publicly asking for help, but I'd love
to join a "cabal" of new font packagers.
By the way, what was this IRC classroom about ? Did it deal with how
to package fonts and "what-is-this-fontconfig-I'm-hearing-about" ? If
yes, are the minutes available ? Is there another one planned ?
