DM application of Greg Beam

KI7MT
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hello All,

This is my declaration of intent to become a Debian Maintainer
<URL:http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMaintainer>.

I have read the Social Contract, Debian Free Software Guidelines and
Debian Machine Usage Policy and agree with all of them.

Currently, I am taking over maintaining packages < wsjt, wsjtx > and
adding new packages < jtsdk, kvasd-installer, wspr, map65 and wsprx >.

My GnuPG key < 0DA2F991 > is *not* signed by an Debian Developer yet,
due to geographical locations of DD's, but an active search has begun.

I look forward to becoming a Debian Maintainer. Thanks for your attention.


Best Regards,

Greg Beam, KI7MT

Hi Greg,

It's great that you apply for becoming a Debian Maintainer.
However, according to [1] you are new to Debian. To avoid disappointment
-- I need indicate to you that the DM process is a little different as
you might have imagined: You need first to do some work in Debian and
then after a while contributing to Debian, usually when your sponsor
suggests it to you, you will apply for DM status.

So I suggest to read  https://www.debian.org/devel/join/ and
maybe http://mentors.debian.net/intro-maintainers for information how to
get your packages sponsored. (I also usually hang there around to
sponsor people. Don't hesitate to ping me if you have something to
sponsor ;-)

It seems to me that you might be also interested in getting contact with
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianHams, I'm pretty sure they will welcome
you and also help you with your contributions. Becoming DM wil be then
the second step. So its already a good idea to get you key signed!

So, please feel welcome and be encouraged to contribute to Debian.

Hi Tobi,

Thank you for the feedback. I need to fix this email as my client
defaulted to my 2048R key, rather than the 4096R key I recently created
for this purpose.

See further comments below.

Two of the packages I mentioned < wspr and kvasd-installer >, are under
review from a DD, just a couple things left to tidy up. ITP's have been
filed or updated against both packages. The builds are clean with the
exception of a missing Debian Watch file message from Lintian. These are
New Packages so will need to go through the new package process. The
third package still needs finishing by upstream ( in this case < JTSDK
>, is myself ).

WSJT-X and WSJT are already in Debian, but are older versions, which I'm
working on updating. Kamal Mostafa is or has volunteered to sponsor  all
4/5  packages, but I'm sure he'd welcome more assistance, as there are
allot of HamRadio packages for sure ! I believe Kamal has traditionally
been the uploader.

I've not joined DebianHams specifically, as Kamal has handled most of
the packages I interact with, but that's a good idea. I dropped by the
IRC channel this afternoon, was kind of quiet.

Hello All,

Please disregard this thread, as I signed this with my old key <
8A963D31 > by mistake.

I will re-send with the correct key.

Apologies for the confusion.
