Today at 15:58 UTC the Kubuntu Council approved Darin Miller’s application for becoming a Kubuntu Member.
Darin has been coming to the development channel and taking part in the informal developer meetings on Big Blue Button for a while now, helping out were he can with the packaging and continuous integration. His efforts have already made a huge difference.
Here’s a snippet of his interview:
<DarinMiller> I have contributed very little independently, but I have helped fix lintian issues, control files deps, and made a very minor mod to one of the KA scripts.
<clivejo> minor mod?
<acheronuk> very useful mod IIR ^^^
<clivejo> I think you are selling yourself short there!
-*- clivejo was very frustrated with the tooling prior to that fix
<DarinMiller> From coding perspective, it was well within my skillset, so the mod seemed minor to me.
<clivejo> well it was much appreciated
<yofel> when did you start hanging out here and how did you end up in this channel?
<DarinMiller> That’s another reason I like this team. I feel my efforts are appreciated.
<DarinMiller> And that encourages me to want to do more.
He is obviously a very modest chap and the Kubuntu team would like to offer him a very warm welcome, as well as greeting him with our hugs and the list of jobs / work to be done!
The meeting log is available here.
