Re: New pkg-perl group members: Clint Burfoot and David Bremner
Thanks, Gunnar, for the welcome.
I know you already gave a very short overview on your reasons to join
in the requests you sent via Alioth, but I'd like to request both of
you to present yourselves to the pkg-perl group - Why are you here,
what do you expect to gain from and to give to this group. Don't be
I'm here because I'm a full-time Perl developer and Debian user in my
day-job and want to become a more active part of the community behind
the technologies that I use and rely on.
I adopted liberror-perl a couple of years but have done little with
it, partly because the sponsor I was working with gradually lost
interest and became unavailable. Also partly because an application I
made to the New Maintainer process was knocked back (after 8 months)
because I "should probably do some more work". That felt like a kick
in the teeth at the time, but I'm over it now and keen to follow that
(very reasonable) direction.
With the help of a new sponsor I've recently closed a couple of bugs
that had accumulated against liberror-perl, including an upstream
version upgrade. I now want to look towards bringing the package
under the co-maintainership of the group, continuing to work on it,
and seeing what other packages I can help out with.
