I request assistance for maintaining XScreenSaver, I've been without too
much time lately and the bugs requests a lot of debugging in several areas.

The main tasks are:
* Debug the tickets and check which ones are yet a bug and which not.
* Checking and applying patches.
* Checking that there are no issues with packages like kdescreensaver
which depends on build-time of xscreensaver.

I use git to maintain it, is hosted at git.debian.org [0], you can fork
it as well from my github account [1], so if you're interested you
should know basic stuff about git and about maintaining packages with
git (in case of not knowing anything this could be useful [2]).

There are remaining tasks like before launching 5.08 (which is basically
ready):
* Complete the debian/copyright file: it was almost empty, most of the
hacks were obviated and in my spare time I've almost filled the file at
50%. This is the main reason why I haven't tried to upload new xscreensaver.
* Checking which bugs were closed with the latest upstream-release.
* Checking with the KDE-team any issue xscreensaver may give during
build-time for kdescreensaver (which often happens)

This includes the xscreensaver source which is conformed by the
following binaries:
* xscreensaver
    Automatic screensaver for X
* xscreensaver-data
    data files to be shared among screensaver frontends
* xscreensaver-data-extra
    data files to be shared among screensaver frontends
* xscreensaver-gl
    GL(Mesa) screen hacks for xscreensaver
* xscreensaver-gl-extra
    GL(Mesa) screen hacks for xscreensaver

There's currently a pending approval for a project in alioth so there
could be more syncing between co-maintainers.

Regards.
