I'm student of Computer Engineer in the UNET (National Experimental
University of Táchira in English) in Venezuela, I'm user of Debian
since I was 14 years old and when I was 16 I became maintainer. I
got into Free Software after reading a maganize of "PC Magazine"
about Linux that says in the cover "Don't buy software ever more!"
in May 2001. My first distro was Debian, I tried others but "All
the ways get you to Debian"!
Actually I'm maintainer of packages that're very important to me
like powertop, rtorrent, pgpdump, gkrellm and xscreensaver, I have
other perl modules that I use a lot. With Debian Venezuela I have
organized a couple of BSP (with little fixs but a lot of learning)
and a lot of succesfull IRC talks with #debian-devel-es for new
In my university I'm working as sysadmin of 5 linux/debian servers
in the computer lab and 4 workstations, one with kFreeBSD and 3
One of my goal is with the workstation on kFreeBSD use it as buildd
machine for kFreeBSD but the internet access is very limited to only
weekends so I'm using it right now for testing new packages for
kFreeBSD and will use it just for porting and after that I could put
a buildd in my home.
Lots of profiles from Jose:
His blog: http://ghostbar.ath.cx/
And more info related to his GPG key, bug reports, post in technical
mail lists and free software related work.
3. Philosophy and Procedures
Jose 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. Jose committed to uphold the SC and
DFSG in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP.
4. Tasks and Skills
Jose has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
Jose is maintainer of several packages.
He co-maintains various perl modules and is the sole maintainer
libnet-dpap-client-perl (sponsored by anibal),
libnet-rendezvous-publish-perl (sponsored by anibal)
libnews-nntpclient-perl (sponsored by santiago, florian and he),
mybashburn (sponsored by anibal and santiago) and
pgpdump (sponsored by anibal).
He also co-maintains (with Tormod Volden) the very (in)famous
and controversial xscreensaver package (sponsored by anibal and
All packages are in good shape.
Jose also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems
and provided patches for RC bugs.
I recommend to accept Jose Luis Rivas Contreras as a Debian Developer.
