Two related groups of packages I’m interested in are LDAP and Kerberos 
packages. I couldn’t adopt krb5 and openldap since they are in [core], 
but I’d like to maintain related packages like nss-pam-ldapd, pam-krb5, 
and possibly things like mod_auth_kerb, which is an Apache module for 
Kerberos authentication, and apachedirectorystudio if I can get it 
packages more nicely as an eclipse plugin instead of just dumping their 
binaries in /opt.

I’m also interested in some media packages, like np1-mps and mps-youtube 
which are music streaming clients, cmusfm and mpdscribble which are 
last.fm scrobblers for cmus and mpd respectively, 

Other than that, I don’t use much Haskell things, but the language does 
interest me, and I also know that it’s something of a pain to maintain 
the packages, so I thought that more help with that could be nice.
