[Debian account] I request your attention

Hash: SHA1

Dear fellow debian hackers and everybody related to new maintainer process,

I am still waiting for a debian account, it has been more than 6 months, or
perhaps 7 months since I have been approved by AM now. I have informed the
DAM and my AM of the situation in case they have not been able to check the
current situation on nm.debian.org[*] but I have not received any response
from them. I request an explanation, as it seems that my application is
effectively being ignored. Please send any comments to the debian-devel
mailing list: I wish to obtain an open and concrete answer, I do not wish to
read a personal message that advises me to be more patient. In this situation
it is almost impossible for me to conduct my contributions to debian. I
already maintain several packages and plan to do more work in the future
(which you can see on wnpp) and I demand recognition of my contributions as
soon as possible, especially while a release is closing in. I have seen that
many new maintainers are working on a small number of (1-2) packages which
are not too difficult, and I do not appreciate being ignored while I have put
work in significant contributions. I feel as if a double standard is being
practiced on me, which does not become an organization like debian that has
many claims on freedom and openness.[+]

If there are people who are familiar with my contributions among those who
are reading this message, I request their help in resolving the odd situation
that I am facing. If you do not know about my contributions and my situation
and are wondering why I have written this message, which might sound in a
slightly rough tone, I request you to have a look at nm.debian.org and then
the packages in the archive that I've been maintaining, and then I believe
you will conceive that I may be frustrated. I will be updating you on my
situation exactly two weeks later.

Please make a fair evaluation my application.

I am looking forward to your sensible comments,


[*] Which is something that I do quite often and I see no visible changes
regarding my situation. All information is readily accessible from the web
page; which amounts to all the official word on my situation.

[+] A situation which could only be explained by personal dislike or
discrimination due to another attribute of mine.
