I wonder whether there is no shortcut for emeritus DDs?
Yes, I think that reactivating an emeritus DD account is faster than getting the DD status from scratch. However, getting the DM status immediately seems to be faster. I hope it, at least.
If not I would for sure support your application.
Thanks. Please, send again your supporting message, but signed with your GPG key,
Kind regards Andreas. On Mon, Mar 28, 2016 at 05:04:12PM +0200, Rafael Laboissière wrote:This is my declaration of intent to become a Debian Maintainer.

I hope they will support this application.Of course, I have read the Social Contract, Debian Free Software Guidelines and Debian Machine Usage Policy and agree with all of them.Best regards, Rafael Laboissière 1. https://firstname.lastname@example.org-- http://fam-tille.de
