I have not confirmed that this procedure will work, but here is my
- The Alioth system administrators have asked for help several times.
Get in touch with them and check what exactly they need help with.
Do a good job helping them, and prove that way your abilities as a
system administrator. Next, contact the new maintainer frontdesk
and ask how the NM process fit your skill set and interest, and go
through the process to become a official Debian Developer.
- There are several custom debian distributions focusing on making it
easier to maintain a installation of Debian machines. For example
Debian-Edu and Debian-NP comes to mind. Become active in these
sub-projects, and do a god job improving the tools and maintain the
system used by these projects, and then as earlier described, make
contact with the new maintainer frontdesk to discuss your case.
There is no need to wait until your official Debian Developer
membership card is available for you to become involved in sysadmin
work in Debian. And already being involved will make it a lot easier
for you to become a official Debian Developer.
