Philosophy & Procedures

Evan understands Debian's philosophy and agrees with it.  I really liked
his answers.  Some quotes (with permission):

 > 6 Software should be Free no matter how the software is used. [...]
 > Anything in Debian main can be used for anti-social behavior, thank
 > goodness.


 > 1) You can't drink free speech.

 > 2) If you stand on a street corner and yell, "Free Beeeeeer!" people
 >    will come running. If you stand on a street corner and yell "Free
 >    Speeeeeech!", you'll get arrested.


 > (What's interesting to think about is that what Americans normally call
 > "Free Speech" is not DFSG-free at all. YOUR freedom to speak or write
 > does not give me any freedom to take your words and republish them for
 > profit. I especially cannot modify those words to better fit my own
 > needs.)

Tasks & Skills

Evan has ITPed and packaged Freenet.  He's currently chair the AuthXML
committee, a standards group for exchanging authentication/authorization
info between security domains using XML.


I recommend that Evan be accepted as a Debian maintainer.
