That is not a rule. It is a mere recommendation (it will probably help your AM). However, I remember somewhere that the NM team intends to make it a requirement at some point. Basically, you need to show you have done work in debian before applying to the NM process. > > Also, is it difficult to change one's alioth username?

So, my debian mail is fsate...@debian.org, therefore my alioth id will be fsateler. -- Saludos, Felipe Sateler _______________________________________________ pkg-multimedia-maintainers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-multimedia-maintainers
