Thanks for your interest and great effort!
I GPG signed and identified 4 people by their passports and other
official ID, on the chance that they may want to become maintainers.
Two have decided to go ahead, and I mention them here. It would be good
if some Mentors got in touch with them.
Salahuddin Pasha <email@example.com>
Jamil Ahmed <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I believe that Salahuddin is an active participant in the Bangla
localisation effort for OpenOffice.org (or is it Jamil - please correct
It is me. :)
I believe they are both already quite active on some Debian
Thank you for helping them. I am looking forward to the Debian
Community embracing them and encouragin them with open arms. It is good
to see another corner of the map soon to have a red dot on it!
Some introduction of me:
I am Jamil Ahmed from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Professionally I am working in
a local software development company. In my spare time I do maintain
some activities for Open Source, mainly localization. Currently I am
maintaining/working Bengali/Bangla L10n for Debian, Fedora, Mandriva,
OpenSUSE, Gnome, Firefox, Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org .
I will try my best to work for Debian. I hope I will get necessary
assistance from you when required. :)
