Introducing new Ports Committer, Dima Panov

with one comment

I will be mentoring Dima along with Martin Wilke. Dima was instrumental working behind the scenes in preparing the FreeBSD port of KDE 4.3 and as a result we are punishing him with a commit bit.

Dima’s new handle is [email protected]

Just remember Dima, you are not a real committer until you break the INDEX, then fix it!

New ports committer, Gabor Pali

without comments

Just in time for the 7.2 freeze, I got word from portmgr@ that I could mentor Gabo Pali, pgj@ in ports, with gabor@ as co-mentor.

I first hooked up with pgj@ when I submitted a PR to add a light bulb joke in the FreeBSD FAQ. Since that time, pgj@ wanted to wade into the ports world by helping out with Haskell. I have been reviewing his work since the new year, and decided to make it legit early in April.

Enjoy the enhanced commit privs, Gabor, and please don’t break the INDEX!

New ports committer, Dennis Herrmann

without comments

I am fortunate to be co-mentor with Martin Wilke, to learn Dennis the subtle nuances of being a Ports Committer.

Don’t think of Dennis as +1 to the German World Domination Team, think of him as a citizen of the world. Of course, should Dennis receive is first Pointyhat, I will declare him German, and Martin will declare him West German :>

Congratulations, Dennis, may your Pointyhats be elusive!
