Report for 'Debian Developer, uploading' applicant Alexandre Viau


I recommend to accept Alexandre Viau as a new Debian Developer, uploading.
The account name is aviau.

 * Applicant background


My name is Alexandre Viau. I am from Canada, Quebec.

I have been maintaining some packages for a while and I have now decided to put more time into Debian. I have wanted to become a Debian Developer for a couple years now and now is the time. Debian is an amazing project and I am very motivated to contribute.

I am currently the maintainer of the following packages:

 - influxdb-python

 - python-click

 - python-riemann-client

In order to get InfluxDB into Debian, I have made the following uploads trough the Debian Go Packaging Team:

 - golang-github-davecgh-go-spew_0.0~git20150619-1

 - golang-github-rakyll-statik_0.0~git20150419-1

 - golang-collectd_0.0~git20150630-1

 - golang-gopkg-fatih-pool.v2~0.0git20150325-1

 - golang-github-kimor79-gollectd_0.0~git20150616-1

 - golang-github-ugorji-go-msgpack_0.0~git20130605.792643-1

 - golang-gopkg-tomb.v2_0.0~git20140626.14b3d72-1

 - golang-github-boltdb-bolt_0.0~git20150715.980670a-1

 - golang-github-peterh-liner_0.0~git20150318-1

 - golang-github-ugorji-go-codec_0.0~git20150815.821cda7e-1

 - golang-github-bmizerany-pat_0.0~git20140625-1

 - golang-github-armon-go-metrics_0.0~git20150601-1

 - golang-github-rakyll-statik_0.0~git20150419-2

 - golang-gogoprotobuf_0.0~git20150717-1

 - golang-gopkg-mgo.v2_2015.06.03-2

 - golang-gopkg-vmihailenco-msgpack.v2_2.3-1

There is only one dependency left before I can upload InfluxDB. If all goes well, this will happen in the next few days.

I intend to continue working on the InfluxDB-related ecosystem. For example, I intend to package Telegraf, which is a plugin-driven server agent for reporting metrics into InfluxDB.

In the future, I also see myself working with the python modules team as it is in my areas of interest.
