I recommend to accept Andrew Starr-Bochicchio as a Debian Developer. 1. Identification & Account Data -------------------------------- First name: Andrew Middle name: - Last name: Starr-Bochicchio Key fingerprint: 6EB223D7D71E67A53C93A7DA3B56E2BBD53FDCB1 Account: asb 2. Background ------------- While I don't have a computer science background, I'm the kind of person who wants to understand how the thing we rely on in our lives work. I'm not a carpenter but knowing how to build things has certainly been very helpful in my life. It's that mindset that brought me to Linux and free software. I'm also the type of person who looks for ways to give back to the communities that I'm a part of. This led to me becoming active in triaging bugs and other tasks in Ubuntu in 2007. Eventually I became an Ubuntu Developer in 2009. My first upload to Debian was file-browser-applet, an applet for the old GNOME2 panel, in June of 2008. While that package is now gone (well, still in stable) as it was never ported to a GNOME-Shell extension, in the past four years I've gone on to (co-)maintain ~20 packages. I've been active in a few teams for awhile now, namely pkg-bazaar. One main goal that has accelerated my desire to become a DD is that the only active DD on the team has indicated he will be stepping back after the release of wheezy. So I hope to be able to not just upload the packages in the team that I already look out for closely (which I can already upload as a DM), but also be able to sponsor uploads for other non-DD team members.
