For nm.debian.org, at 2017-12-02. I'd like to become Debian Developer, uploading. I don't see it as neither the end of my road, nor the beginning: more as new chapter in my involvement in FLOSS and Debian Community in particular. My involvement with Debian was changing over the years. I started using it in 2003, after going through many other distributions (including Linux From Scratch, if this can be called distribution) and stayed with Debian since then. I guess it was the knowledge that Debian has constitution, policy, and extensive documentation that led to this choice. I haven't read it then to carefully, though. In 2009 I started using GPGPUs, and started using PyCUDA. Shortly later I packaged them, and then decided to share my packages --- and upload them to Debian. I maintain PyOpenCL and PyCUDA since then, even though currently I don't use them myself. In 2012 I become Debian Maintainer. In 2013 I went to my first DebConf. In 2015, after next DebConf, I opened New Member process It seemed like natural next step --- but I guess I was missing itch to scratch: being Debian Maintainer allowed me to take care about packages. Becoming Debian Developer did not seem to bring much more value, especially as I did not see need (or want) to upload other packages. So I let this process to expire. The history of my previous process can be found in email@example.com --- although I don't have access to this archive. But I became member of the cloud team. We build Debian images for various cloud providers, intending to provide high-quality images (following Social Contract point 4). At the same time I'm active in local cloud-related Meetups, and use cloud both for my private and work-related needs. And I believe that Debian should matter in the cloud space, that we should becoming solid base for cloud services. My main role in the cloud team is writing test suite (with other team members), to ensure that our images are of high quality. And this becomes the itch. Basically, want to become Debian Developer and to have access to Debian machines, to be able to run tests on them, to check and debug those tests, and to publish their results. I might also need to upload cloud-related packages. Thanks for your attention.Signed with key A565 CE64 F866 A258 4DDC F9C7 ECB7 3E37 E887 AA8C
