BC185AB3 2002-04-14 Robert Bihlmeyer <email@example.com> Background ---------- Andreas has contributed to Debian in a number of areas, from packaging software, NMUing buggy software, and filing bug reports, often with patches. He is interested in becoming an official maintainer, to make maintaining his packages easier, among other things. He says: "Official maintainer status would ease my work as maintainer, sponsoring works and is a great safeguard, but it is a extra work. And sometimes I'd like to use e.g. a PowerPC machine for test-builds." Philosophy & Procedures ----------------------- Andreas displays a thorough grasp of Debian's philosophy, and agrees with it. His answers to my questions were succinct and completely correct. Tasks & Skills -------------- I have looked over Andreas' packages, and they are generally high quality. He has also sent in a number of patches to fix bugs, specifically with respect to the switch to invoke-rc.d. Andreas currently maintains newsx, and has done several sponsored NMUs. Recommendation -------------- Andreas is an excellent candidate to become a Debian maintainer.
