Bits from the New Member process


this is an announcement of news from the Debian New Member Front Desk.

* nm.debian.org has a new theme

Taking advantage of SnowCamp[1], Enrico worked at a new base template
for nm.debian.org. The site should look better, adapt better to a wider
varieties of devices, and being based on well-known frameworks like
Bootstrap[2], be easier to expand and improve.

[2] https://packages.debian.org/buster/libjs-bootstrap4

* Official list of Debian Members

We now have an authoritative list of all official Debian Members at
https://nm.debian.org/members/ which is linked from the official website
at [1] and at the bottom of [2].

* Improved person search

https://nm.debian.org/public/findperson is now much more stable, easier
to use, and usable from mobile.

* Full name vs LDAP information

The site has historically used the LDAP structure for storing personal
information, including the first/middle/last name distinction. This has
been a long-standing issue, as that distinction is incorrect in a way or
another for several Debian members and contributors[1].

The site now allows a person to provide their full name as they deem
appropriate, and has a separate section for filling in broken-down LDAP
fields for legacy compatibility with the current Debian infrastructure.

* Tracking MIA Application Managers and Front Desk members

A new page[1] tracks the last known activity of Application Managers and
Front Desk members, to help keeping the staff status up to date.

* New mailbox viewer

Visible only to applicants and application managers, the viewer for the
mailbox archives in the site is now significantly refactored, and should
look and feel a bit more like a standard mail reader, making it faster
and smoother to use.
