Default Is this possible

Hello All,

Is it possible to become a MOTU and only be interested and involved with
one package?

While it is theoretically possible, nobody has yet succeeded in
doing so, and the process of demonstrating sufficient techinical
skills and integration with the community typically takes far longer.

Separately, what obstacles to you find when working on a single
package that you believe would not exist if you were to join MOTU?
Ideally, there should be sufficient processes in place to allow you to
effectively support a package as a contributor, and any problems
encountered likely need to be addressed, whether to support your
maintenance of the package before joining MOTU, or to support your
maintenance external to MOTU.

I can say this is how my interest in MOTU started as well.* I was
interested in maintaining the mythtv packages, and quickly realized how
much other stuff related to it was broken.* Most of my MOTU related
work now sits in the media stack, with apps that will affect a myth
based box and media apps (including those that aren't necessarily used
on a myth box).
