Step 7: Debian Account Manager check and account creation
The Debian Account Manager has to make the final decision about the account creation. If any major problems in the application are found, it is either directly rejected or given back to the Front Desk, which decides how to complete the application.
There are some problems that always lead to a rejection:
- Failure to provide adequate identification.
- Failure to agree to our principles and procedures.
- Failure to complete the tasks the Applicant agreed to do with their Application Manager.
When the Debian Account Managers are satisfied with the complete application, they ask the Debian Keyring maintainers to add the Applicant's key, and the Debian System Administrators to create the necessary accounts for the Applicant and subscribe the Applicant to the debian-private mailing list.
Once all the final details of membership have been completed by the Debian Account Managers, the Applicant, their AM and the debian-project mailing list will be informed.
