Background: ============== My name is Philipp Hübner, I am 20 years old and live in Erkelenz (Germany), which is between Mönchengladbach and Aachen and close to the Dutch border. At the moment I'm doing an apprenticeship as an IT system engineer. In the beginning of 2006 my IT teacher asked me if I were interested in learning Linux. I instantly said yes, and so I came to the school's self learning center which was powered by Debian Edu and lead by Patrick Winnertz (winnie), who was about to finish school. And then a very steep way of learning how to use Debian began. One year later, January 2007, I did a two weeks work experience at credativ GmbH, which is specialised on Debian and OpenSource software and where many Debian Developers are working. I came to this work experience because the general manager of credativ, Michael Meskes, had originally the idea of running my schools's self learning center on OpenSource basis and tought the first students (winnie, white and more) how to use Debian (Edu). After the first week of my apprenticeship, Michael offered me a part time job next to school and an apprenticeship after finishing school, and well, I took both chances. This also improved my handling of the self learning center, which previously had given me the chance to do this work experience. The next 1.5 years I worked for credativ and learned much more about Debian and Linux in general, while finishing school with a very good Abitur. Then in August 2008 I began my apprenticeship. Back to Debian: I have learned very much in a very short time. At work I was surrounded by DD's anyway and Debian has become my only OS by now. So after private usage, public administration and usage at work the next logical step was to become personally involved in development. And with that I began in the second quarter of 2008. And now here I am. Maintaining several packages, reading plenty of mailing-lists, using the BTS, having done much testing for pkg-lustre and been one of the few people working actively on jbossas5 (pkg-jboss) for Debian. In the last months I have installed Debian (Edu) in several schools throughout Germany, mostly in Rhineland-Palatinate (referring to http://www.debian.org/News/2009/20090315 ). Since Debian Edu brought me here, I'm planning to join the team and help with future developement, using the experience I collected while installing and maintaining Debian in all those different schools. 3. Philosophy and Procedures: ============================= Philipp has a good understanding of Debian's philosophy and procedures and answered all my questions (be it template questions; patched template questions, thanks to Bernd; or any additional questions) about the social contract, DFSG, BTS, etc. in a good way. Philipp also committed to uphold the SC and DFSG in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP. 4. Tasks and Skills: ==================== Philipp's packages were in good shape already, and checking them was mostly about discussing details and best practices in depth. I believe he's ready to handle his packages or NMUs as expected from any Debian Developer. He worked on RC bugs/QA uploads and provided suitable fixed packages. 5. Recommendation: ================== I wholeheartedly recommend to accept Philipp as a Debian Developer! Mraw, KiBi.
