My first package for debian was in late 1995 or early 96. There wasn't really
any formal process for being a DD back then, just volunteer on the lists and
do the work.  Different times.

1998 is probably when we started signing package uploads.

i'm down to one package these days, dlocate, which i work on when i'm able. i
uploaded a new version of it a few months ago - the upload completed OK, but
the new version never went into unstable. I have no idea why it just vanished,
probably some change to the upload procedure that I haven't had the energy to
explore yet.
