Daniel is a very advanced user who for a long time has been the proverbial buzz in my ear, keeping me to the fire with media-optical duties. Apparently he has been doing the same for other developers. He's currently co-maintaining a number of ebuilds with several developers.
media-tv/channeleditor: media-tv herd
Daniel *will* be joining the media-optical herd so that I may slack more. He's also expressed interest in joining the following herds:
I will mentor Daniel, though he will probably need little help with the technical side of things.
About time! Feel free to ask me questions on irc if you need some help with something. Also, please contact angelos and myself when you finish about joining the xfce team, another active member would be nice.
Daniel has finished his quizzes and is waiting for a recruiter to be assigned to him.
I just granted edit privs to Daniel as requested by Peter.
Peter, please set a watch over Daniel so that you can follow his work in bugzilla.
Daniel, I will be your recruiter. Please send approved by your mentor quizzes to email@example.com. After that contact me by IRC or email to schedule the first review session. Note, that each time you'll send something to firstname.lastname@example.org don't forget to add a comment to this bug. Thank you.
Ebuild and end quiz sent to recruiters.
Daniel passed ebuild quiz review yesterday. Unfortunately today he mailed me that he has some issues with hardware and it's hard to predict how long it'll take to resolve them, so it's possible that we'll have to delay recruitment a bit.
Daniel as soon as you'll have hardware fixed, ping me either by mail or in IRC and we'll reschedule review of end of mentoring quiz. I hope it doesn't take too long to fix hardware since these days it's impossible to imagine life without computer ;)
Revised quizzes sent to recruiters along with the ebuild.
@infra: Please, subscribe, email@example.com on gentoo-core. tia
Finally announcement sent. Sorry for delay.
Daniel, although we discussed this on Irc, here I duplicate some information on what you need to do (or already did) just for reference:
- subscribe to mailing lists with @gentoo.org address
- request forum status bump in #gentoo-forums or by mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org (if you have a forums count)
- send yourself mail to create .maildir
- add yourself to mail aliases ( like email@example.com )
see /var/mail/alias on dev.gentoo.org
- ask team leads to add yourself to herds.xml for the herds you want to
join or do it yourself if you have the permission to do so
- set lat and lon attributes in LDAP if you want others to know where
exactly you are located
- set gentooIM if you want people to be able to contact you via other
means than email
For the mentor: well, you were supposed to follow Daniel commits for one month, but since I was lagging I checked his commits now and everything looks ok. Enjoy free time :)
