Hallo everyone, I intend to un-retire from Debian. My original request follows; by request of jmw, I’m also filing this request here. Axel Beckert has already seconded the original request, which he was Cc’d in. >Given that you retired during a rather turbulent time for the project, >it might be helpful to have some details in your Statement of Intent >about your recent work in Debian and your plans for the future. That’s fair: I took the “time off” to look at my involvement from an “off” perspective, and was able to separate the technical, political and emotional parts of it. I had orphaned all packages but quickly ended maintaining most of them again (via collab-maint, so I’m not an SPOF, and via a sponsor). I’ve continued to follow best practices and current development (such as dbgsyms) and maintain a few packages in Debian and quite a number of them both in my personal repository and for the workplace, and strive to keep them as correct as possible. I intend to continue working on select packages to make the Open Source world a better place, but not involve myself with project-level decision making much, as evidence has shown this to be… not very successful. Furthermore I intend to sponsor packages of people I know and mentor them, which I already do in private, but not involve myself in official activities where I have to deal with people as project representative. I hope this is acceptable; if not, please ask back, and I will try to answer/clarify. Thanks in advance, //mirabilos - From email@example.com Mon Aug 1 15:06:16 2016 From: Thorsten Glaser <firstname.lastname@example.org> Message-ID: <Pine.BSM.4.64L.email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Mon, 1 Aug 2016 15:06:37 +0000 (UTC) Subject: Returning after retirement following DevRef §3.2.6 Hello Debian Project, I have come to believe it is for the Greater Good of Open Source work that I return from retirement (emeritus status) back to the Debian project. https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/developers-reference/developer-duties.html#returning does not have many information about this process, but given that my PGP key still works, has a lot of signatures, that I've been not only maintaining a few packages in the meantime but also modernising them (move to git on collab-maint, newer debhelper, for some even dh7-format) and have been helping out on other packages, I think this should be straight forward. In case I need recommendation mails (other than those posted to d-private when I retired), I've Cc'd two developers I've been working with, so they can give such mails if required. References: - - RT#5511 - - https://nm.debian.org/person/tg Please tell me whether there's anything else you require from me for this, and whether this will be processed now.
