For nm.debian.org, on 2023-09-09:
I'd like to apply to change my status in Debian to Debian Developer,
I have worked on maintaining several packages in the past six months
as a Debian Maintainer, and I'd like to be able to more directly help
maintain other packages and do uploads myself, as well as uploading
packages to the NEW queue without a sponsor.
I started contributing to Debian back in 2020, sending patches for
the opendht and jami (ring) packages. I was able to take over the
maintenance of these two packages earlier this year, and worked hard
on getting them in good shape and up-to-date again in time for the
Bookworm release with help from my kind sponsor Petter Reinholdtsen,
after a long period of stagnation due to absence/unavailability of
the packages' former maintainer.
As a Debian Maintainer, I currently maintain Debian's jami, opendht,
and restinio packages, and I help maintain several GNOME packages as
a member of the Debian GNOME team. I'm also a member of the Debian
Emacsen team, where I've contributed a few changes, and plan to do
much more - including contributing new Debian packages for various
GNU Emacs packages and helping with maintenance of existing ones -
going into the future.
Furthermore, as a free software activist, I care greatly about the
Debian project as a whole, it being one of the most comprehensive
collections of and one of the most popular vehicles for distribution
of free software, and I'd like to be able to participate and vote on
important issues and matters regarding the whole project and help
uphold its values and commitments to computer users' freedom, as a
full member of the project.
