It's been a while since I've followed up on the NM process, so I thought I
should reaffirm my intent after a couple recommendations that I do this.
Since my last declaration of intent, I've also started maintaining
efibootmgr and efivar. I've also cleaned up the open bugs in Debian and
Ubuntu for these.

It's not clear to me that this is currently the correct way for you to start
the NM process.  I don't see your name listed here:


Have you followed the process on https://nm.debian.org/public/newnm ?

I'm following the guide at https://wiki.debian.org/DebianMaintainer for
becoming a Debian Maintainer (not Debian Developer). I may be missing
something, but I've looked it over a few times, and that page makes no
mention of the form you pointed out. Should I be following a guide
different from the one I am using?


I don't suppose it hurts to do it now, so I went ahead anyway: https://nm.debian.org/public/person/jared
