Dominique Dumont: Debian NM process: it s not bureaucracy, it s

Hello Before entering Debian NM process (formerly New Maintainer process, now New Member process) , I ve often read that it was too long, too hard, or too bureaucratic. It s certainly true that becoming a Debian Developer takes some time. Even if you re already actively packaging. You have to answer a lot of questions regarding several aspects of Debian project. Some of them are not fun but necessary: All in all, the NM process was time well spent. I ve learned a lot. IMHO, Debian NM process isn t bureaucracy, it s more like a training. And an interesting one. So, if you re thinking about becoming a Debian Member, to paraphrase someone, what the bloody hell are you waiting for ? :-) Many thanks to all people that helped me become a DD: All the best

Dominique Dumont: I m a Debian Developer now :-)

He he , after6 months of hard labor (just kidding, it wasn t difficult) I m now a brand new Debian Developer. I plan to continue the work I did before, mainly Perl module packaging, helping getting a recent rakudo in Debian, and improving configuration tools (as upstream author). I wish to thanks heartfully all the people that helped me before and during the new maintainer process:
gregoa, xoswald and the whole pkg-perl team. Too bad I can t go to Banja-Luka. All the best
