I recommend to accept Anton Gladky as a Debian Developer. 1. Identification & Account Data -------------------------------- First name: Anton Middle name: - Last name: Gladky Key fingerprint: BBBD 45EA 818A B86F F67E 7285 D3E1 7383 CFA7 FF06 Account: gladk 2. Background ------------- Anton writes as his introduction: I started to use GNU/Linux in 2007, installing Ubuntu on my laptop. Since then I was trying to replace my favorite applications, which I used under another operation system, by free analogues. Right now I am doing a research work at the University and all of my main specific software (mostly for "discrete element method" simulations) are working only under GNU/Linux. I use Debian and derivatives because they have all necessary packages for installing my DEM-software. I maintain packages, which directly or indirectly connected to my work. Some of them are: gnuplot, freecad, paraview, gmsh, yade etc. I am trying to keep them in a good shape. I plan to continue my activity for Debian especially under "Debian Science Team", bringing new and orphaning an existing packages. From our interaction, I found Anton as a very worthy prospective DD. Most of his work is done with the Debian-Science team, and many of his packages are adopted from previous maintainers; even though some do have several open bugs and issues, he answered to my complete satisfaction as to why this status holds - It is more due to being a responsible maintainer and trying not to break software with lots of users being close to or already under a freeze. Anton has work in Experimental fixing several of the mentioned problems. I fully recommend Anton to be accepted as a DD.
