19 new Debian Developers this week: The Debian Project improves its New
Maintainer process
At april 18th 2008, 19 new Debian Developers (DD) accounts were created.

Debian Project is a volunteer effort, and needs more skilled manpower at
many human knowledge areas.

One of the bottlenecks is the Debian Accout Management (DAM), and Sam
Hocevar delegated some important tasks to more people, distributing
future workload. While the batch of new DD accounts were created, he
issued a Debian Project Leader (DPL) announcement just before
transferring position to the new elected DPL, Steve McIntyre.

This decision is a measure to quickly improve its New Maintainer

The added DAM and FTP Master immediately set to work and announced a
number of changes to the archive software as well as outlining some more
TODO items, adding a call for help for those tasks that do not require
special privileges.

Last year, the Debian Maintainer status was approved as another decision
to improve process, granting partial rights of a full DD.

All Applicants' progress can be tracked at every phase, by anyone.

Ongoing discussions are being held at debian-project mailing list to
find a better New Maintainer process management with a more scalable and
permanent solution. 

Debian Project has a long history of debating its own key solutions, and
the emerging ones, having the colective wisdom of many, had been proven
under real situations.
