In the last week, the number of new members admitted into Debian
by the New-Maintainer process has passed the 100 mark. There are

to become members of Debian. Without their cooperation and
patience, all of the volunteer efforts could easily have been
Thanks go to everyone who helped to make this process work. Your
help and support have been very much appreciated.
