[ Advocating Romain Perier <email@example.com> for DM process #585 on 2019-01-29. ] I support the request by Romain Perier to become Debian Maintainer. Starting in April 2018, Romain has contributed to various packages maintained by the Linux kernel team (linux, linux-latest, ethtool, firmware-nonfree) and I have reviewed most of those contributions. Romain's contributions to these packages include: - - Adding upstream patches for the kernel and updating its build configuration in response to bug reports - - Keeping the PREEMPT_RT patch set up-to-date - - Fixing build failures introduced by Debian-specific patches - - Adding a script to summarise upstream changes in the changelog for firmware-nonfree He quickly learned our processes and his work has been of a high standard, so I added him to our Salsa group in September. I think he is ready to be a Debian Maintainer.Signed with key AC2B 29BD 34A6 AFDD B3F6 8F35 E7BF C8EC 9586 1109
I have worked with Romain Perier for some months (at least since October 2018), debugging issues related to the (non-free) raspi3-firmware package, where he kindly helped me put my head out of a thick layer of sand. He has helped me with several issues regarding the (unofficial) Debian preview image. While there is clearly a lot of ground Romain has still to cover to learn the nooks and crannies of Debian development, I see him as an engaged person, and I am happy to state he would make a great Debian Maintainer. [ according to the recommendations in nm.debian.org, I will state: I am sending this message to advocate Romain Perier <firstname.lastname@example.org> for DM process #585. Today is 2019-01-28. ]Signed with key AB41 C1C6 8AFD 668C A045 EBF8 673A 03E4 C1DB 921F
