List of new Debian contributors

August 17th, 2010 by lucas

Since I worked on UDD‘s upload history gatherer during Debconf, I generated the list of new Debian contributors. (By contributor, I mean here someone in the Changed-By field of an upload (so it’s not necessarily the maintainer of the package he/she upload)).

It’s quite fun to try to remember the context of your first upload to Debian (which package, who sponsored it), and look at the other contributors that “graduated” at the same time as you did. Or to see the constant flux of new contributors.

    It would also be nice to have the names of folks who appear in the changlog of uploads made by multiple people in a team, like this:

    foo (1.2.3) unstable; urgency=low

    [ Foo Bar ]
    * something

    [ Bar Baz ]
    * something else

    (the third one is a bogus one for the uploads with an unknown fingerprint)
