AM report for Jack Moffit <jack@xiph.org>



Report for new developer applicant Jack Moffitt <jack@xiph.org>:

Summary: accept

1. Background
------------------------------

   Jack writes about his background:

   > I was using Linux in college and with a friend decided to write Icecast,
   > a streaming media server.  We decided to make it open source because it
   > seemed like a fun thing to do.  After the sucess of that project, I was
   > hooked on open source forever.  I've been using Linux for about 6-7
   > years, and for about the lsast 3 years, pretty much exclusively.  I
   > switched to Debian a few years back, and fell in love with apt and dpkg.
   > 
   > I am involved in several free software projects.  Most notably, I help
   > run Xiph.org which produces open multimedia standards and implementations
   > (such as Ogg Vorbis, Icecast, and others).  I'm also involved with
   > initd.org where I help write Eva (a new versioning system), and I have
   > submitted patches and help to a number of other projects over the years.
   > 
   > I would like to help Debian in several ways.  First, I have packaged
   > ipython which is already in Debian, and I hope to help package more new
   > things.  I'm sure that several of these will be future Xiph.org tools.  I
   > will also assist Tor and Ralph in packaging Ghostscript which I am also
   > quite involved with.  Secondly, I hope to get more involved with Debian
   > in general, having been just a user for a number of years.  I plan to get
   > more active in testing and bug reporting, and I will probably pick up an
   > orphaned package or two as time goes on.  I already thought about picking
   > up gadfly, but it seemed that someone already adopted it.  I've already
   > been helping to bring the old icecast packages in Debian into compliance,
   > and just had a new icecast-client package uploaded by my sponsor a few
   > weeks ago.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
-----------------------------
   Jack has a good understanding of Debians Philosophy and
   Procedures. He answered all my Questions about Social Contract,
   DFSG, BTS etc. in a good way.

3. Tasks and Skills
-------------------
   Jack is Maintainer of ipython, which is currently in
   Debian; he is sponsored by kmr, who also advocated him.
   Jack has also done an NMU (sponsored by fog) of icecast-client.
   Both of those look fine.

   His answers to my T&S questions were quite ok.

4. Recommendation
-----------------
   I recommend to accept Jack as a Debian Developer.
