Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi guys, I just love Debian, I think it's the best operating system in the world and I know some people around will agreed me, hehe, well the matter is that I'm reading and learning about how to become a package maintainer since I hate it when I can't find a package on the repositories, and plus this way I can help the free software comunity.
So if anyone around here is or have been a Debian's package maintainer I would love to hear advices or some guideness, it would be pretty helpfull.
to become a package maintainer since I hate it when I can't find a package on the repositories
won't win you votes with the Debian developers to accept your input. Only when you create a package you're expected to maintain it also, but only then just that package. It's highly unlikely they'll entrust you with any (critical) package currently maintained by someone else.

I know that, I just meant that because of that reason I wanna become a part of the solution, and not just keep being another viwer of the problem .
Since a long time ago I wanna be a package maintainer, but now I'm finally serious about it.
Well then you should read the new maintainers guide and sign up for the Debian Mentors mailing list from this page and start asking some questions on there. Then in about a year or two when you have completed the new maintainer process you will be a Debian Developer.
