VLC for YOPY/Linupy

Looking for a YOPY package maintainer

The VLC team is looking for a package maintainer that wants to support VLC media player for linupy OS on YOPY PDA's. The YOPY port of VLC is already for a year in experimental stage and could use an active supporter. Knowledge on compiling VLC media player for an ARM cpu (StrongArm/XScale) is available in the team. Send an e-mail to vlc-devel mailing list and I (Jean-Paul Saman) will try to answer your questions.
