We envision a package in Debian that provides a program, how-can-i-help, that shows you ways you can help Debian.

Initially it would be very similar to rc-alert and wnpp-alert but more verbose about everything not assuming that you know what are you looking at.


Of course, almost all of these ideas fall off the apt-get hook idea already in place which is more oriented to engage with people that is already engaged somehow :)

These can be showed on demand and a have a good default when invoking the program


Probably will be useful to come up with metrics so we can measure how useful the program is.
