I also wanted to point out that it's also possible to help with
packaging without knowing the programming languages used in the
software you are packaging.

Knowing such programming languages is required to fix bugs
inside the software being packaged, or to port forward some of
the patches made by the distribution, however people doing packages does
not always need to do that in the software they try to package.

In that case it's best to either try to get some help or try to package
another software.

This is not uncommon: in most free and open source projects, many
contributors are not able to do everything, to fix every bug, or to
understand all the source code.
