time flies when you're (busy) having fun

If you could excuse me for an off-by-one (day) error, exactly 6 months ago I cried «OH MY!» in reaction to DPL election results. Time flies when you're (busy) having fun.

6 months it's a long time, lots of stuff can happen in such a time frame. But 6 months is also a relatively short time frame to get up to speed in a new job. 6 months, finally, also corresponds to the midterm of any given DPL term. While I've been doing a sort of personal "self assessment" of my DPL activities (and sooner or later I will take the time to put that down into public writing), this seems to be the perfect moment to ask others for feedback. 6 more months of the current term are ahead of us, and there is still time to change or adapt what I've been doing and how I've been doing it.

So, in case you care about what a DPL can do to make your staying in Debian more fun and useful for the Project, then this is your turn to let me know. Feel free to mention not only what you think I've been doing right, but also—and in fact more importantly—what you think I've been doing wrong. (Tip of the day: as usual in volunteer communities, lingering on the side of constructive criticism will maximize the chances of having your suggestions implemented.)

I would very much appreciate if you could take a moment to think about it and get back to me, via the medium you prefer: leave a comment here, mail me, or whatever else you please. Remember that a good deal of DPL day to day activities is about representing the Debian Project and it's entirely up to you, project members, to say how that should best be done. So … many thanks in advance for your invaluable feedback, I'm looking forward to it!
