[debian@onerussian.com: Fwd: [atlas-devel] tenure letters]

Almost forgot about this -- a while (now) back I have received a request
for letters of support for the lead developer of Atlas.  I circulated it
on debian-science, but I bet there are other Debian developers who might
like to contribute to such a letter.  Please feel free to contribute:


I am going to send it out to Clint in a week, so there is time left.

With best regards,

I am sure that we have lots of Debian-science users of ATLAS (actually
according to popcon it is more than 5% of Debian users).  And it
is time when we could help securing future ATLAS development.

I guess Sylvestre as the maintainer could write a letter and few
debian-science users/developers could write few more.  But what about
composing may be a group letter from Debian-Science group?

If idea is sound, then I guess we should start composing it on google
docs... sounds good?

I go up for tenure this summer.  The tenure committee has asked that I get
testimonials from ATLAS users so they can see the importance of the package
to the community.  So, if ATLAS has been of use to you, this is the time
to write a letter saying it.

If you are an individual researcher, discussing how ATLAS helps you in
your research will be very helpful.

If you are a repackager of ATLAS, discussing how ATLAS helps your distro,
and how many people use it would be very helpful.

If you are a sys admin who installs ATLAS for others to use, outlining
your lab and the types of research done their would be of great help.

If you have read my papers and find them helpful, discussing that is good as
well, but you don't need to do that for this, since they will ask for
academic reviewers separately.

If you know others that don't monitor this list who might be willing to
write letters, please pass this message on.  My colleagues have specifically
asked for this information so they can give weight to my claims that
providing ATLAS is a service to a large number of communities, that
it is widely used, and that its continued production at UTSA will
raise our profile.

If you are willing to write a letter and need further information,
please contact me directly if you like.
