Description Andreas K. Hüttel gentoo-dev 2017-04-30 12:30:21 UTC
Toralf Förster is going to officially join us from beautiful Hamburg, Germany. 

Name       : Toralf Förster
Nick       : toralf
Mentor     : Andreas Hüttel
Tree access: No (for the moment)

By now you should all know Toralf as the never-tiring tinderbox guy, and it's in this capacity that he will join us at the moment too. Quoting, "My plan within the Gentoo universe is to help keeping the portage tree in a acceptable quality - for stable users as well as for the early birds."

I will be your recruiter. Please contact me by email to schedule the first review session. If you think that recruiters aren't paying attention to this bug at any later point in time, it's your job to ping us on IRC if you don't want any delays.

What we did:
- bugzilla

- announcement
- IRC cloak

- gentoo-core
- gentoo-dev-announcement
What you need to do:
- subscribe to mailing lists with your address
- request forum status bump in #gentoo-forums or by mail to (if you have a forums account)
- send yourself mail to check if it works
- add yourself to mail aliases ( like )
  see /var/mail/alias on
- 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
- Register to with your e-mail address using
  the following instructions:
- 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
- If you want your blog to be syndicated to, check
- contact for Foundation membership (optional)
For the mentor:
- You are also responsible for the commits of your recruit during the first
  month so you should watch the commits of your recruit via gentoo-commits
  mailing list.
