Philosophy and Procedures

  Steve had the following to say WRT to his understanding and agreement
  with the DSC and DFSG. I found it a bit formal, but quite sufficient:

   =====> BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT <=====  [Formatted; Content verbatim.]

   This is my statement of agreement of the DSC and DFSG. I have read
   and understood the file `/usr/doc/debian/social-contract.txt'
   dated Dec 18th, 1998. 

   I am willing to provide the time I spend working on Debian, either in
   maintaining one or more of it's packages, or of supporting Debian in
   other ways (for example manning a stand at a show), at no change to the
   Debian Project.  I do, however, reserve the right to receive funding 
   from other sources for any work that I undertake that I might also
   submit to Debian. 

   Any software development I carry out for Debian I will release back
   to Debian and the Free Software Community, for distribution as they
   see fit. I will also, where appropriate, feed any changes to existing  
   software upstream to the authors for them to include in the original 
   work if they see fit.

   Any work that I do on behave of Debian I will allow to be distributed
   under the terms of an appropriate license.

  =====> END INCLUDED TEXT <=====

Tasks and Skills

   The task Steve is volunteering for is package maintenence.

   Steve has two lintian-clean packages ready to upload. These packages
   can be fetched from <ftp://danno.tzo.com/people/danno/NM/steve> if
   anyone wants to examine them.

Evaluation and Check-in

   Steve first learned to package for Debian with the packages
   that are availabe at the URL above. One will notice that he
   chose to learn packaging by building a shared lib and a -dev
   package. He chose a non-trivial package to learn on, and did
   fairly well, as an examination of his packages shows. :^)

   He also understands and agrees with the DSC. I cannot make
   any judgement as to whether that agreement is personal or
   professional in nature, but he will abide by the DSC either
   way. This satisfies me WRT to his philosophy.

   For P&P, I am satisfied that he understands some of our policies and
   proceedures, and knows where to find the ones he doesn't. While he was
   learning to package, he asked me a number of questions WRT policy.
   [Lintian warnings/errors arising from policy violations.] I only gave
   him "bare-bones" explanations, and pointed him to the relevant Debian
   documentation. He found his own answers/solutions in the manuals, and
   produced a lintian-clean package. He will do well on any packages he
   builds in the future :^)

   Once he gets on board, and gets some experience, he will make an
   excellent contributor to the Project. :^)
