Bazaar developers’ blog

congratulations, Jelmer

Filed under: jobs — Martin Pool @ 11:29 pm

I’m enormously pleased to announce that Jelmer Vernooij will be joining the bzr team at Canonical on a full-time basis from January next year, replacing Robert Collins (who recently became Launchpad’s technical architect). Jelmer has contributed to Bazaar over many years including driving the svn and git foreign branch plugins and the bzr-rewrite plugin.

Jelmer already works at Canonical on the Launchpad team, and has recently been involved with the recipe builds feature that automatically assembles deb packages from the contents of upstream branches. We will very likely look to hire someone to replace Jelmer on the Launchpad team, through the Canonical jobs page.

I got a lot of very good applications from the bzr community and beyond, and I just wish I could work full time with more of you. Thanks to everyone who did apply.
