I'm still learning my way around libretools. But I've been makepkg'ing stuff
from myself for some while so it  shouldn't take too long. I'd really enjoy
being able to take up some of the load for thing like out-of-date packages or
those packages that just need a quick rebuild because some lib updates and it
now needs to be rebuilt against the new ver on the lib. etc. 

As my skill and confidence improves I'd start branching into packing requests

that might be a bit of a learning curve. I do run my own site. but just
lighttpd and flat html. So, I'd need time to get used to whatever lamp/Xamp set
up is there.

Yes, as you know I enjoy doing so

So yes, but with the caveat that I'll take things on when I'm sure I've got the
skills not to accidentally make a major mess. Honestly I've been using Linux
since the late 90's and computers since the late 70's so the hesitance isn't
from a lack of skill but rather the fact that I've not been this deep at
contributing to a large project like Parabola and so best to tread lightly till
I get the lay of the land.
