   Applicant writes (Message-ID: <20061214134203.GA30278@evy>):

Well, I was already interested in Free Software in 2000 or so, and tried
Red Hat & Mandrake a bit at that time, then I came to Debian 3 years ago
as user & administrator (local network, in my university). Some friends
of mine (Simon Paillard, Thomas Huriaux) were already involved in the
French localization team, and I stepped in some months later. As of now,
I maintain some translations, and regularly review translations of the
other members of the team, on debian-l10n-french.

(Since that time, I've been using only Free Software, being convinced
and charmed by its quality, its open development model, and the
possibility to step in it easily.)

Then I looked a bit at packaging, which I found very instructive. I
packaged some applications on my own (running apt-ftparchive on
`home-hosted' server), then I decided to ask for a sponsor for some of
them I thought ready for inclusion in Debian. My primary area of
interest in applications is graphics, e.g. Blender, Yafray, Inkscape,
etc. I cought the O: of `ogre' some weeks ago, and I was pinged by the
pkg-games team at that time, because Gonéri thought it would be great to
have it maintained by the Games Team, which made me join that team. Some
time ago, I also made some bug triage for Xfce, tried to reproduce bugs,
do some debugging, etc.

Beside that ``packaging & using'' part, I also found porting
interesting. I first worked a bit on hurd-i386 some months ago, and
produced some patches at that time (I'd mention the mesa one: #358065,
which wasn't trivial and unblocked many dep-waiting packages).
Unfortunately, due to directfb problems, some packages are missing at
the moment, like a recent gtk. In parallel, I looked a bit at
GNU/kFreeBSD in order to have a look at another OS, play with it, etc.
Some applications weren't built on it, like blender and yafray, for
which I sent patches too.

Some time ago, the buildd has to catch up many builds, so I didn't know
which packages could FTBFS, and stopped my porting activities a bit,
concentrating myself on packaging (my own packages) and helping the
pkg-games team (I detected and fixed some FTBFS, pinged buildd admins,
-release, etc.).

I also like to enhance applications, I recently sent a patch to make
epiphany(-browser) a bit more flexible about tab/homepage (#402177) and
to make libxine's esound output plugin aware of remote esound server

In short words: porting + packaging, with some bits of l10n.

   Cyril has a good understanding of Debian's philosophy and procedures
   and answered all my questions about the social contract,
   DFSG, BTS, etc. in a good way. He committed to uphold the SC and DFSG
   in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP.

4. Tasks and Skills
   Cyril has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   He is maintainer of graphviz, which he has done a good job to get this
   previously abandoned package in good shape again. Further he maintains
   lots of other which are generally in good shape [1].
   He also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems [2][3],
   provided patches for (RC) bugs and interacted well with bug submitters
   and maintainers during his own and QA bug triage [3]. In addition he is 
   involved in upstream development of Epiphany Webkit.

5. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept Cyril Brulebois as a Debian Developer. The delay in
   the T&S and AM Report waiting state is only due to my lack of time during
   the period from Aug - Oct 07.
