Oh, I just realized I sniped out most of Mateusz's mail in my response
and cc: to soc-coordination, so here is the full text:

> Hi,
> I would be interested in making KDE4/Qt4 based package manager. I am
> 2nd year student of computer science from Poland (Gdansk University of
> Technology, CET/CEST) with some experience in C/C++ and Qt programming
> and git as SCM. Currently during my spare time I am working on light
> music player in Qt4.5 for Linux (something like foobar2000 for
> Windows). I think that it will be possible for me to do that package
> manager, if I take some time during the community bounding period to
> learn more about Debian package system and reserve my vacation and end
> of  time to my vacation and main application.
> I think that it will be good idea to make this application only in Qt
> (without KDE4). Thanks to that someone who doesn't use KDE could use
> this package manager without downloading extra dependeces.
> How this package manager should look? I would make it look a bit like
> synaptic or shaman (from Chakra). I think that aptitude-gtk and adept
> are not userfriendly. Using these applications was quite difficult for
> me. This kind of program is aimed at beginners, so we must make
> everything to try make package installing with this tool as simple as
> possible.
> That's why I think the best way to make Qt4 based package manager is
> make it from scratch.
> If you have any questions, just send me an email. I have problem with
> writing in English, but I hope that content of this email is clear for
> you.
