Report for: Noel Koethe <noel@koethe.net>

- -----------

Noel is a student in Germany and has been working with Linux since 1996. 
He has done quite a bit of work throughout the OSS community, running 
websites such as http://www.kernelnotes.de/ and mirrors like
http://de.samba.org/. His goals in Debian include packaging and continuing 
his current translation work. According to his advocate, Michael Meskes, 
he administers Debian boxes professionally for several companies.

ID Check:

Questions answered satisfactorily, with good understanding of the DFSG.

P&P check passed.

Tasks & Skills:
- ---------------

Since I don't speak German, I myself cannot evaluate Noel's translation 
work. However, he has been a member of the German translation team for 
quite some time, with CVS access. Gerfried Fuchs <alfie@debian.org>, one 
of the German translation coordinators, writes that he thinks Noel's help
"is really valuable" and that "it's easy to coordinate with him ... he has
a good understanding of what it means not to translate word-wise but to
also give it a meaning."

Noel also packaged ipac-ng, a fork of ipac which supports iptables. His 
initial package contained mostly minor errors, which he corrected rather 

T&S check passed.

- -----------

I recommend that Noel becomes a Debian Developer.
