Ubuntu packages and their PPA looking for a maintainer

Damien Cassou the maintainer of Ubuntu package is looking for a maintainer.

He announced the following:

I’ve recently switched my Linux distribution from Ubuntu to NixOS. This means I can no longer maintain the Ubuntu packages and their PPA (https://launchpad.net/~pharo/). These packages need a maintainer! The good side of it is that it is not a lot of work as I did all the automating infrastructure: https://github.com/pharo-project/pharo-ubuntu.

Basically, the maintainer will have to launch a few shell scripts regularly (once a month for example). I will obviously be available to help the new maintainer. The community needs *you*.

Good news is: I packaged the Pharo VM for the Nix package manager which can be installed on many Unix (e.g., Linux, MacOS X, FreeBSD). And NixOS will have the Pharo VM package in its next release in October!
