Hi all,

the development cycle for lenny just started off. We would like to bring
new people into the loop for lenny now to better distribute the workload,
and look out for new release assistants.

These are the requirements for release assistants:

* You must be a Debian developer. Please include your name, and
Debian username on your application. The position will entail
work that requires login access to Debian machines which is
only available to developers.

* You must have time to kill. You'll need to be able to dedicate
a chunk of time each week to this task, and be able to keep
up with what's going on on a close to daily basis. Please
include on your application what times of the week you expect to
be able to spend on this activity, how much Debian stuff you
already do, and when you're usually available on IRC.

* You need to have done QA work before. Please include on your
application a list of sample bugs you've fixed or help fix
in packages you don't maintain. If you haven't done this before,
feel free, nay, encouraged, to fix some bugs first, then
submit your application.

* You need to be able to understand C, /bin/sh scripting, Perl,
Python, Debian packaging, policy, the developers reference,
and similar things. If you don't, don't waste another second
reading this mail, go learn about them instead.

* You need to be aware that this is a gruntwork position. You
won't be deciding release policy, and this isn't an
opportunity to advance any existing opinions you may have about
how we should go about releasing or maintaining Debian. You'll
be given lots of chores, and no authority. The reward for a job
well done will generally just be another, probably harder,
job. If you don't think you can cope with this, don't apply.

Please contact the release team via debian-release@lists.debian.org or
me directly by e-mail if you are interested. Applications should reach us
before mid July.

Cheers,
Luk
