Advocate

This page collects statements of advocacy for Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de> to become Debian Developer, uploading.

You must be logged in to submit a statement of advocacy. See the Single Sign-On page for details and https://sso.debian.org/ to obtain a suitable client certificate.

See here for advocacy tips, and here for some more rationale.

Please be verbose if you can. You may want to write the advocacy in a proper text editor and paste it in the form when you are happy with it.

Warning: upload rights have been requested, and Helge Deller does not seem to be a DM. The general rule is that before applying as DD, you should have been a DM for about six months. You can still advocate Helge Deller, just please take a moment to elaborate on this.

Note: An email with your advocacy message will be sent to the debian-newmaint public mailing list

This requirement has been approved by Housekeeping Robot <nm@debian.org> 2 weeks, 5 days ago.

Statement Uploaded by Upload date Actions
Helge Deller has been active in Debian for many years. He has been
especially active in the HPPA porting area, which allows him to touch
many areas of Debian and interact with various package maintainers. He is
also maintaining the HPPA build daemons, and as such already has upload
rights to the debian-ports archive and access to buildd.debian.org to
manage the build queues. All of that give him a good knowledge of the
Debian procedures.

I have met Helge in person at DebConf 2015 in Heidelberg, where I have
signed is GPG key F4CFF4C00BE43CFB5153A06887C9C151B51E3864. I met him
more recently during ELCE 2019 in Lyon.

With my glibc maintainer and debian-ports hats I have personally worked
with Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de> and I know he can be trusted to be a
full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights,
right now.

For nm.debian.org, at 2019-11-11:
I support Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading.
I have worked with Helge Deller on Debian Ports for various architectures since at least
2014 and I think that Helge is a very skilled and enthusiastic open source developer that
has already made considerable contributions to Debian and very important upstream projects
like the Linux kernel and QEMU.

I think Helge's DD status would be a very valuable addition to the Debian project as it will
enable him to work more efficiently on the projects he has been working on as well as extending
his work to support other developers when it comes to low-level software development in Debian.

He could, for example, become a member of the kernel team as he is also responsible for one of
the kernel subsystems, namely the PA-RISC port. Having another experienced kernel developer
in the Debian kernel team would surely be a big advantage.

I have met Helge in person at DebConf 2015 in Heidelberg as well as on another occasion when
I was in the area of Walldorf, Germany. I have personally worked with Helge Deller <deller@gmx.de>
(key F4CFF4C00BE43CFB5153A06887C9C151B51E3864) for 5 years, and I know Helge Deller can be trusted
to be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights, right now.
