Community Teams Process Docs

Recruitment

While we strongly believe that making Debian a good and welcoming place for collaboration is a responsibility of all members of our community, there's also a need for dedicated people to assist when things are not working so well. If you think you'd like to help, please contact us at community@debian.org - we promise not to bite! :-)

We will ask some questions about background (etc.) of new volunteers. Ideally, we'd like to see some existing experience of doing tasks like community support or mediation but that's not a hard and fast rule. We're also happy to work with less experienced people - everybody has to start somewhere!

One rule we must follow, however, is that CT members must already be Debian Developers. The job often includes private tasks and discussions that we can not reasonably share with non-DDs.

Assuming that we're all happy to proceed, we'll then invite new volunteers to work alongside the rest of the team for a short probation period. If all goes well, we should be happy to extend full access to a new member within a few weeks.
