Define 'familiar', I can understand and can read all of the above
(have done little personally with ssh but know what it is etc.) but I
don't have the chops to write scripts or create/edit the 'routines' if

It's not so much that, all these offers of 'university computers'
could easily be set up to run patchy-merge-staging. Patchy-test while
very important doesn't take too much of my LP time (I can run it in
the background whenever I am at my computer), so that doesn't bother
me doing that at all, it's more a case of LP doc work not getting done

It's all fascinating stuff to me, so I don't mind poking with GUB but
I am not sure if it is the best use of my time considering what I can
do now (i.e. doc and bug squad) and what might drop if I moved to
other work. Also are there other tasks (i.e. website building) that
might be less of a learning curve for me (take extra work off of
Graham) that might be better for me to start to tackle. Either way I
don't mind what I end up doing - technical skill-set accepted.

Being 'overwhelmed' isn't anything I ever worry about, there's always
lots to do but only a finite amount of time to do it in.
