Report for 'Debian Developer, non-uploading' applicant Lev Lamberov


I recommend to accept Lev Lamberov as a new Debian Developer, non-uploading.
The account name is dogsleg.

 * Applicant background

Hi guys,

I am Lev Lamberov (dogsleg), 31 years old, work as a docent (corresponds to associate professor) of Philosophy department of Ural Federal University, Yekaterinburg, Russia. But I'm also very interested in the Debian Project, that's why I want to volunteer my time. I use Debian since etch release and contribute to the Project from January 4th, 2013 [1]. Thanks to DebConf diversity sponsorship I visited DebConf15 and enjoyed it.

I'm working mostly on Debian website translation into Russian. I've already translated more than 3000 pages (given that some of consultants and users pages were deleted from repository), you can compare archived website statistics page [2] (December 2012) with the current statistics page [3]. At some point I've got write access to website repository at Alioth (my Alioth login is dogsleg-guest), at the present moment my statistics here consists of 1985 "adds" and 606 "commits".

Recently I started to contribute to Debian Documentation Project, I have write access to ddp repository and already updated Russian translation of Release Notes. Also I've translated into Russian (1) aptitude user's manual (which is published), (2) Introduction to Debian Packaging (published), (3) Debian Developer's Reference (not published yet, [4]).

I'd like to start working on packaging. But need to find more time for that. Actually I have some experience with building Debian packages (for myself only, not to distribute somewhere), but I still believe that I should start from big preparation work (like reading manuals) and applying to mentors.d.n. So, it for the future.

Also I contributed (also translations) a bit to GNU Project and FSF (like translating subtitles for their short propoganda movie [5]), and FreedomBox Foundation.

University-wise I teach several courses, two of which are (directly) related to free software. The first is on philosophy of computer science and the second is about ethical problems of informational technologies. And of course I use Debian, talk about Debian and encourage my students to use free software.
