AM Report for Dayne C. Litzenberger =================================== Identity -------- There is no debian developer living near Dwayne that could sign his key. He issued a call on the Key Signing Coordination page, and asked on debian-devel [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-0012/msg01580.html] without success. Hence I accepted his scanned image of his drivers licence and his high school student cards. When asked he named a teacher of his high school who could confirm his identity. I contacted that teacher (his email address is listed on the web page of Dwayne's high school) and he replied (from a different account) that the person on the scanned images is Dwayne. Philosophy and Procedures ------------------------- Dwayne has a good understanding of Debian's philosphy. When asked he sent me a statement that he abides by the SC and the DFSG. I gave him an example of free/non-free licences and he told me correctly why the licence in question is non-free. Then I asked him more detailed questions about how to adopt a package, how to put packages in non-free and how to move a package from free to non-free. He answered these questions to my complete satisfaction. Dwayne declares that he agree to abides by the Debian Machine Usage Policy. Tasks and Skills ---------------- Dwayne was planning to take over the libsdl* packages. According to Dwayne, however, the current upstream author changed his mind and does no longer want to give them away. Dwayne has packaged tmake, a utility to generate makefiles. The second version of his package is lintian clean (his first version had some bugs) hence I did a sponsored upload. He also packaged a toy program, parun. About his plans for future contributions he says: Well, I plan to do a lot of debugging of other packages, working on tightening up default security, making Debian work a _good_ (not just acceptable) desktop OS, and doing some work getting Debian GNU/Hurd under way. Applicant Information --------------------- Real Name: Dwayne C. Litzenberger Forward email to: email@example.com preferred login: dlitz Recommendation -------------- I recommend that Dwayne be accepted as a Debian maintainer.
