Summary for Dann Frazier


Dann writes about himself:

  I grew up in New Mexico and graduated with a BS in Computer Science from
New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology last year.  My first encounter
with Linux was as a first year student at NMT in 1996.  I was a Linux user
for 2 years - primarily Slackware.  In 1997 I took a student job as a Systems/
Network Admin for the Math Department, where I maintained Solaris, Windows,
and RedHat Linux boxes.  This job gave me the opportunity to play with Linux
and become familiar with tasks like building kernels, installing the latest
security errata, managing samba, etc.

  I took a job for Hewlett-Packard last year in what is now the "Linux Systems
Organization".  It was there that I was first introduced to Debian, and was
less-than-gently persuaded to give it a try.  It took a couple of weeks before
i was typing /etc/init.d/<foo>, and about a month before i grokked dselect :),
but I quickly became hooked - initially due to just the technical merits, but
also to the philosophy later on.  I was amazed by the openness conveyed by the
BTS, and the strict adherence to the DFSG.  I soon installed Debian over all
of my existing RedHat systems.

  As a Debian maintainer, I would like to maintain packages that I find
useful, thereby making them more useful by others.
I will also continue to do general QA - filing bugs, submitting
patches, and writing the occasional man page.

Philosophy & Procedures

Dann understands Debian's philosophy and agrees with it. He could
answer my questions about the Social Contract, the DFSG, NMUs and the
bug tracking system to my satisfaction.

Tasks & Skills

Dann packaged SystemImager, which is in incoming, sponsored by Matt
Taggart. It is not a trivial package, and Dann did a good job with it.


I recommend that Dann be accepted as a Debian maintainer.
