Archive for the ‘ports committer’ 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
Having mentored avl@ for about the last four months, glarkin@ and I agreed, it was time to set him free. It has been a great pleasure mentoring him.
Congratulations Alexander. Good luck, and may your pointyhats 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!
Just to reiterate a posting by miwi,http://miwi.bsdcrew.de/2009/06/fresh-blood-for-kde-freebsd-team/, we have added two more members to the FreeBSD KDE team, newly minted Ports Committer Kris Moore of PCBSD, and Dima “Red Fox” Panov.
We have been working diligently to keep to the KDE beta schedule. The work we do is being stored in a repository, http://websvn.pcbsd.org, for inclusion to the FreeBSD Ports tree.
If you are interested in testing, you can read more at http://freebsd.kde.org
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
