We are not only committers, we are also humans!

portmgr has accepted Baptiste Daroussin as a port freebsd committer. After several good PR, he has his punishment.
I will mentor him with my old wise mentor tabthorpe@. Together, we wrote a little questionnaire.

1- Can you introduce yourself?
I'm a unix system engineer, I use FreeBSD since 4.X but don't remember what number the X, I'm a rugby player (second row) and I'm really not good at introducing myself.

2- When was your first pr and why?
My first pr was to add a new ports multimedia/zapping, to be able to watch TV with my bktr card, but it never enters the ports tree. The pr is sill suspended : ports/86401

3- What is your favorite beer/whiskey?
My favorite beer, it's hard to find one but I would say "trappiste rochefort" About whiskey I love "Old Pulteney" and with a completely different taste "Caol Ila"

4- Are you in a LUG/BSD association?
I'm a member of BSDFrance but not doing that much

5- Vim or Emacs ?
vim, what else?

6- What is the most embarassing thing you will admit to having on your iPod?
I don't have any ipods, and if I had I would said nothing as I really assume my tastes (the bad ones as the others)

7- Boxers or briefs?
Boxers for sure

8- What is your preferred x11-wm/ on FreeBSD?
i3 or pekwm depending my mood

9- As a maintainer, who where your 3 favourite committers?
