Sharing a small introduction about myself -
Just to share, I have been a debian user and contributer to close to a
I have done bits of bug-reporting whenever I come across issues for me
and my clients and have some simple de-bugging at times .
I was also lucky to be part of Debconf 2016
I have also been lucky to be part of quite a few mini-debconfs and
debutsavs which are held in India, Kochi being the most recent -
and do have a blog which is part of p.d.o.
I do however, have a favor to ask you .
I have made another article sharing how the DPL elections are held,
the Condorcet method. While I have shared some of the musings as well
as some of the ideas that you and the fellow candidates did share on
the platforms. I also shared some of the ideas which some people have
shared in making debian packaging easier, debian-installer modernized,
getting people to be paid for their work ( I understand there are
concerns there) and much more which will make Debian young and fun

of your newest DPL .
Looking forward to hear from you.
