Debian Project Leader (DPL)


Interacting with the DPL

  • Email contact: <leader AT debian DOT org>

  • IRC channel: #debian-dpl on irc.debian.org (OFTC), if you want to help or for informal chat, requests here might fall on the floor so please use e-mail instead for those.

Usual roles

  • Jonathan Carter is the current project leader

Talks given by DPL can be found here.

More stuff


One of DPL duties is taking care of Debian money, below you can find pointers to money-related resources.

  • Sprint Program - the most common and possibly useful way of putting into use Debian money

  • Sponsoring Guidelines - best practices / requirements to get sponsored with Debian money

  • Using Money - what you (as a DD) can ask sponsoring for

  • Reimbursement - how to get reimbursed for Debian-related expenses (in case you're entitled to)


  • Contribution certificate: you can ask the DPL for a Debian contribution certificate (please don't ask for one just for vanity though, as they take some time to verify and send it out; however if you need one for a job or similar reasons, you are more than welcome)

  • Handover process for new DPLs

Your help is welcome!

  • Want to help out with routine tasks or even grammar / spell checking of documents? Feel free to join #debian-dpl on oftc, and please introduce yourself. If there are specific areas you'd like to help with, please say so!
