First Debian CI Contribution

| debian | programming | foss |

I’m so excited to share that I had my first contribution to the Debian Salsa CI team merged!

It’s been almost six years since I wrote this post about wanting to become a Debian Developer. I did a bit of work with a few of the debian-qa projects, but life got in the way, and here we are today.

I read the most recent bits from the DPL where I learned about the Salsa CI team for the first time. I sent an email to the team offering to help wherever I could, and I got an awesome response from Otto giving me a ton of direction on how to get involved.

I took his advice and started exploring stale MRs to see if there was anything I could take over and get merged. I found a relatively simple task that involves passing some additional parameters to the reprotest program, and a few days later we were able to get it merged.

I’ve spent a huge part of the last 10 years working on CI problems. It feels great to be able to take some of that knowledge and contribute it back to this project that means so much to me. I’m excited to have a quick win, and am looking forward to contributing even more.

Thank you for reading! Share your thoughts with me on mastodon or via email.
