Andrew already maintains 66 packages in ::gentoo and one eclass. I believe he'd be a great addition to the developer community.

Thanks Matt

> Nick: AndrewAmmerlaan (Andrew, please confirm)

Yes that's correct, it's AndrewAmmerlaan everywhere (forums, wiki, GitHub etc) except on IRC where it is Andrewammerlaan (I never got around to changing that to be consistent with the rest)

I will be your recruiter. Always add a comment to this bug when you send something to recruiters. Please contact me by IRC or 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
- granted access to main gentoo.git
- IRC cloak

- announcement
- Added user to GitHub Gentoo team (instructions given)

- 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
- 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
- visit the Gentoo Nitrokey portal at 
  in order to get a free Nitrokey Pro 2 security key
- 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.
