Request a change of status

Any Applicant to a status in the Project (either a guest LDAP account, a Debian Maintainer status, or a Debian Developer status) must create an account on

This is done via authenticating Debian SSO website or Salsa. The recommended method today is to rely on Salsa. Debian Developers will also get the SSO account as part of their account creation.

After the first log in, the New Member site will consider the user as anonymous. The Applicant therefore has to visit the NewNM page of the site to put his initial data via a web form.

When these steps are done, one can visit their personal page and request a status update to either "Debian Developer, uploading" or "Debian Developer, non-uploading" depending on what one wishes.
