Warning about Debian New Maintainer Application
On 2001-05-17 you applied to become a Debian maintainer on the Debian
New Maintainer website at http://nm.debian.org/ After 3 weeks of applying,
all applicants who have not yet been advocated receive this warning email.
Advocacy is where a current Debian maintainer believes you have made
enough preparations for applying to be a maintanier. It is generally
reasonably easy to be advocated. For example, if you are wanting to
build packages for the Debian Project then you would probably want to
built a package and then get it checked and uploaded by a sponsor
(see http://www.internatif.org/bortzmeyer/debian/sponsor/ for more
information) then your sponsor could be your advocate. If you are
working on a porting or translation subproject, then someone there
should be able to advocate you.
If you have not found an advocate within six weeks from the date of
your application, then your application will be automatically deleted
from the New Maintainer database. You may re-apply any time when you
believe that you are prepared for the new maintainer process.
