Archive for the ‘mentor’ tag
Where has the summer gone?
I am pleased to introduce Rene Ladan, (rene) to the ports tree! He has been a long time ports contributor, and a Dutch Documentation committer. He made the classic mistake of sending in too many PRs, so I decided to punish him.
Last month (yes I know I am late), Gabor Pali asked me to co-mentor Giuseppe Pilichi (jacula@), to join the FreeBSD Haskell Effort, aka the Haskell World Domination team. As I had the pleasure to mentor pgj@ into the ports world, it seemed fitting to assist with jacula!
I am pleased to announce my latest mentee, Alberto Villa. Alberto has been a dedicated contributor with the FreeBSD KDE team, and it was finally time to punish him with a ports commit bit.
Martin Wilke will be Alberto’s co-mentor in this little adventure!
Dima “Red Fox” Panov, aka fluffy@ has been a dedicated contributor to the FreeBSD KDE team, and his hard work has paid off, miwi@ and I have cast him loose to collect pointy hats on his own.
It has been a pleasure being your mentor, Dima, good look, and may your INDEX breakages be elusive
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!
Short story long, I was privileged to meet Greg Larkin, glarkin@, at BSDCan 2009. We were chatting during lunch time one day and he says something like, “I really should mentor somebody”. I told him I would take him up on the offer in the near future.
That moment arrived, to co-mentor avl@.
Congratulations Alexander, may your pointyhats be elusive
Dennis Herrmann worked very hard since receving his port commit bit, and today miwi and I set him free.
Good luck Dennis, and remember, I like chocolate chip cookies
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!
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!
