Interview: is Ubuntu beneficial for Debian?

Filed under

Interviews
Ubuntu

Today I’m presenting you my first interview, today is the turn or Raphaël, a Debian Contributor. I’ve meet Raphaël by his blog. He is interviewing other Debian contributors, and I’m interviewing him, continue reading and meet him better.

What’s your biggest achievement within Debian or Ubuntu?

In terms of number of hours put in a single project, I think it’s the development of the new source formats and all the associated work to get them accepted in the archive, and to smooth the migration path for all maintainers.

In terms of impact on Debian, my proposal of “sponsoring” package uploads evolved and ended up really changing the way we deal with prospective maintainers. That was 11 years ago and we still have sponsors to review and integrate the work of newcomers.

What are your plans for Debian Wheezy?
