one of the many reasons DebConfs are great (Re: DM application of Ian Campbell)



Hi,

after DebConf12 I read the replies to Ian Campbells DM application, which 
ended with Bdales reply:

(read the whole thread starting at 
1342221322.8586.271.camel@hastur.hellion.org.uk">http://lists.debian.org/1342221322.8586.271.camel@hastur.hellion.org.uk - it's 
heartwarming :-)

This, improving the Debian community by creating excellent opportunities to 
work together, is one of my main motivations for doing DebConf work, and I 
really loved it to see it "summed up" this nicely in the whole thread.

And similarily, I'm happy to learn that (appearantly) DebConf12 made Leandro 
apply for non-uploading DD now as well!

And, (knowing DebConf a bit) I know there have been many more advancements I 
know nothing or little about! :-)


thank you all for making Debian what it is,
both technically & socially,
cheers,
	Holger


P.S.: this is also why I think we should keep the DebConf/Debian newbee 
initiative!
