Debian Developer

A few days ago I was awarded official Debian Developer status.

Many thanks to:

  • Thomas Viehmann
  • Ana Beatriz Guerrero López
  • Daniel Baumann
  • Christoph Berg
  • Thomas Bushnell, BSG
  • Stephen Gran
  • Steve McIntyre
  • Neil McGovern
  • Cyril Brulebois
  • Matthew Johnson
  • Sune Vuorela
  • Peter Palfrader
  • Jonathan McDowell
  • Tim Retout

For posterity, my first experience with the Debian development process was with #400550. Never underestimate the importance of giving credit in changelog entries.

Great to see you've been given developer status. I've been around GNU/Linux and BSD for a long time. Used to go and chat to Debbie and Ian. Helped to start a long time ago. Many others. It's been a lot of fun and some hard work.

You are one of the most reasonable individuals I have ever seen. I am glad to see you as a Debian leader. I use BSD, but whenever I have to use Linux, it is always Debian.
