New Debian New Maintainer Process Passes 100 Mark
November 10, 2000

>> News

In the last week, the number of new members admitted into Debian by the
New-Maintainer process has passed the 100 mark. There are more than 100
applicants currently being processed by Application Managers and fewer
than 100 potential applicants waiting in the queue for the next available
Application Manager. This represents a major milestone in the new
procedure, indicating that the machinery is in full operation and
doorway into Debian is fully open once again.

>From the beginning design of process in early February, the final results 
we can see today could not have been accomplished without the strong and
steady support of the Debian developers who have graciously volunteered
their time, shepherding applicants through the process of becoming a new
Debian member. We must also thank several of the newly installed members
who have given their time to help reduce the waiting line of prospective
applicants. Without this volunteer effort this process would not now be
enjoying this success.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has or is contributing
to the success of the New Maintainer process. Without the great volunteer
efforts of many developers, non of this would be possible. Even with all
this help we could not have accomplished our goals without the patience
and responsiveness of those waiting to become members of Debian. Without
their cooperation and patience, all of the volunteer efforts could easily
have been squandered.

Thanks go to everyone who helped to make this process work. Your help and
support have been very much appreciated.
