Update:

As of Feb. 27, Branden has nominated himself. Branden, thank you for being willing to go through this again. We appreciate your commitment to Debian.

To all who made sure we hit 100: Good job, folks. Now...let's get him elected, too!


Success

As of 10 Apr 2005, Branden was elected DPL! This is as good a place as any to congratulate him, so here goes: Congrats, Branden, it's about time! (Paul Cannon)


Branden Robinson is seeking feedback on whether or not to run for Debian Project Leader in 2005. He is wondering how many people support him running. See http://people.debian.org/~branden/dpl/to_run_or_not_to_run_in_2005.html for details.

This page is a place for people to register support for a Branden 2005 campaign. Please use the edit features and list yourself here if you want him to run. Listing yourself doesn't necessarily mean that you intend to vote for him; just that you'd like to see him in the process. Feel free to add brief comments.

Non-specific support

A generic "go for it" or "please run" can easily be taken out of context to support something else. (Indeed, several such notices have been mischievously copied to DraftGergely by somebody. They make as much or little sense there as they do here.)

If you find a message that doesn't specify what it's supporting, please move it to the DraftNonSpecific page so that it's more obvious what needs to be fixed (and less tempting to take it out of context).

Don't move messages that were obviously put here to support Branden running, people who signed their messages and said "Go for it Branden!" are people who are specifically supporting Branden running in response to the wiki, moving them to non-specific is about as stupid as stupid can be.

Supporters (who specify what they're supporting)

If you support Branden Robinson's nomination in the 2005 Debian Project Leader election, say so in your message.

With GPG signature

A message with a GPG signature can be checked against that signature to verify that the conent shown was actually signed by that person's key.

While it's best to say in which year's election you support Branden's nomination, a GPG signature timestamp could be (marginally) trusted to mean "this year".

I see in Branden a viable candidate for DPL.
I do not really understand why he needs a vote
prior to a vote, but I think he should nominate himself.
He is certainly an important candidate to consider
and will help to raise the bar for the election.

I enthusiastically support Branden's candidacy for DPL 2005.  I believe we have seen
several years of smooth sailing, but very little progress in organizational and process
issues.  I believe that Branden will act on the goals articulated in his previous
platforms.  Once he has said he will accept the nomination, I would be honored to be
one of the people who nominate him.

In complete seriousness now, and in search for a mature discussion about the
election of the Debian new Project Leader, I want to be counted among the 100
Debian developers required for you to run for DPL.

Since I support both you and your goals, I humbly ask you to run for DPL again.

I think Branden is a good option for the DPL. He is very compromised
with the project, is a very hard worker and has, perhaps, the better way
to motivate people working in the project: his very hard work in every
slice of the project he has touched.

Good, Branden, i will vote for you.

A good leader can earn respect without needing to be universally liked.

Branden does a ridiculous amount of quality work for Debian, knows which areas
need development, and is willing to chance offending some people in order to
effect change. I expect Debian to move forward with significantly larger
strides if Branden is elected.

If you're willing to go through it again, Branden, do please run again in 2005.

I want to be able to vote for Branden this year (2005), both for his clear and
rational platform and his personality which hopefully will get more things
done.

Controversy is a logical result of this, but I'm confident that your thick

I certainly haven't agreed with Branden at all points, and I think I still
have some burn scars from certain (probably well deserved) flames, but I
firmly believe two things that mean his DPL candidacy in 2005 would be
beneficial:

1) His platform in past years, and his statements of beliefs in other
contexts, are a valid and useful position for a candidate to have - and few
other potential candidates have this precise combination, with none of them
running.

2) He has integrity and honesty. I believe that if he is elected he will,
in fact, stick to his platform; a vote for him is not a vote for the man,
but a vote for what he has said (or, in the case of his candidacy for the
2005 DPL election, will say) he will do.

Branden is one of the project's key contributors, and has some very strong
opinions -which, due to the wrong phrasing, have made him unpopular to many
people- which deserve being said again. 

I do hope to see Branden run again in 2005. Even if he is not the winner, his
points of view should be taken into account in the DPL debates, and hopefully
influence the way the winner -be it him or anybody else- leads Debian this year.

I think you should run again this year.  I am not completely sure about
my vote, because the other candidates have not yet made their
platforms available.  But I think you would be a very good candidate
with good chances.

Furthermore, the current thread in -vote has taught me two things:

- - I shouldn't believe the accusations frequently made about your
  interaction with people: If such a remark, made on IRC, is counted
  as being rude, it's just ridiculous.

- - It seems there are some people who fear that you might get DPL. Let
  them tremble with fear.

Branden: I hope you'll run for DPL in 2005; the project
still needs leadership to accomplish the worthwhile goals
you've set out in your past platforms, and I think you're
the best developer for the job.

I would like to see Branden run for DPL in 2005.
The points he raises in his platform are essential for
Debian.

I really do think branden should run for DPL in 2005. If I'm going to vote
for him depends on the other choices, of course, but him running is certainly
better than some "don't vote for me or my girlfriend will kill me" type of
candidates. ;-)

So go, branden, go!

 Hi,

 Though I am not sure I will put Branden as 1 in my ballot, as I have to read
 first every platform, I think that the most people run for DPL the best
 for the project, as the debate and different ideas can make things to improve
 a lot. After all, that is what democracy is.

Without GPG signature

Text written on a wiki can be edited arbitrarily, so without a cryptographic signature it can't be known that these people actually said what is claimed here.

1. John Goerzen

I think Branden's platform lists many serious issues that need fixing with Debian, and others have been unable to fix them. See http://people.debian.org/~branden/dpl/campaign/2004/platform.xhtml for details.

2. Nick Rusnov

I think that Branden would make an excellent DPL and has shown himself to be extremely dedicated to Debian.

3. Dale E. Martin

I think Branden has had a good platform the last two years, and is a viable candidate. I'll "second" his nomination.

4. Alexander Schmehl

Dear Branden, I'm not sure, if I would vote you if I could, but nevertheless I think you should run for DPL.

5. Stephen Stafford

Branden: I belive you should run for DPL. You always stimulate good debate and highlight the hard issues.

6. Duncan Findlay

I support democracy -- the more people that run, the better. Furthermore, I have generally agreed with many of Branden's platform ideas in the past, so I urge him to run again this year.

HI, YOU REMOVED SOME PEOPLE HERE (I'm putting them back)

7. Ean Schuessler

No DPL election would be complete without your yearly effort. If you win you could order yourself to repay the money that SPI owes me. Sweet!

8. Drew Scott Daniels

I'd support Branden running even though I don't agree with some of his platform. I'm not a Debian Developer so I won't count myself. Someone may want to contact the other people listed as supporters that didn't make the signed list at the top of this page.

00. Your Name Here

If you want to encourage Branden Robinson to be a candidate in the 2005 Debian Project Leader election, copy this template and edit it for your name and message.

Include your GPG signed message like

forget to say what you're supporting.
Please wrap your lines at 65 columns
