I applied for MOTU (Masters Of The Universe) membership few days ago and today during Developer Membership Board meeting my application was part of agenda.
Becoming MOTU is more complicated than gaining PPU (Per Package Upload) permissions which I got during UDS-O in Budapest. Members of board asked me many questions — it took 45 minutes to get from introduction to voting.
But this is how it should be done — MOTU is responsibility for quite big amount of packages in Ubuntu. Anyway, we got to voting:
15:57 < meetingology> Voting ended on: Should Marcin Juszkiewicz become MOTU?
15:57 < meetingology> Votes for:5 Votes against:0 Abstentions:0
And now I am proud member of MOTU team! Looks like next thing to apply for would be Debian Membership. I planned to do it in 2004 but OpenEmbedded took my attention 😉
