Background ------------- Applicant writes: I've been toying with linux for many years and now run it as the main OS on one of my machines. I don't remember why I first got into it but I think it's because I liked the idea of an OS that was free. My first linux experiences were with Red Hat and Slackware based distros but I never really got to know them. From there I moved on to knoppix hdinstalls and then to plain Debian which I have over the years learnt more and more about it and started contributing. I think it's mainly because I get a buzz out of fixing bugs. Also I have been using beagleboards recently and would like to have a port that takes full advantage of them hence why I started contributing to the armhf port. I've submitted many fixes for FTBFS bugs (both existing bugs and newly reported bugs), some were quickly picked up by maintainers but others languished for a long time or were never fixed. I considered preparing NMUs but didn't see much point when I couldn't upload them. Unfortunately I don't think there is any easy way to search the BTS for bugs I contributed patches too but the following google search  reveals a load of them. Then when the armhf port hit the official archive I shifted focus from general build failures/FTBFS bugs to build failures that were happing on armhf (many of them because the package had built some time ago but was no longer buildable in current sid). Then when armhf finished building most of unstable and was added to testing I shifted focus to getting armhf testing into a usable state. As I was contributing to armhf I started interacting on irc with Steve and Hector who (among others) encouraged me to apply for DD status. During this time I prepared three NMUs. I'm interested in the continued viability of debian on arm and in particular the new armhf port though not being an expert on the architecture my contributions are limited to fixing relatively simple to understand issues (qreal VS double being a big one) I'm interested in keeping freepascal in a usable state within Debian and I really want to see armhf released with wheezy and including freepascal. For the goal of getting arm released with wheezy i'm working on trying to get the uninstallability count down and in particular getting certain key packages installable in armhf testing. Mostly this means getting bugs fixed in packages that we need to migrate. For the goal of getting freepascal available on armhf I'm currently working with upstream on porting efforts. I'll backport the work to the version in Debian afterI get it working with upstream trunk.  https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Abugs.debian.org+peter+green 3. Philosophy and Procedures ----------------------------- Peter 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. Peter committed to uphold the SC and DFSG in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP. 4. Tasks and Skills ------------------- Peter has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian. Peter also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems and provided patches for RC bugs. Since he currently doesn't maintain any package, he promptly answered my extra T&S questions in a very good way. 5. Recommendation ----------------- I recommend to accept Peter Green as a Debian Developer.
