AM report for Wilmer van der Gaast

Summary for Wilmer van der Gaast <lintux@lintux.cx>


Quoting Wilmer himself:

> Well, the programming story for me started about ten years ago, and
> the Linux story about four years ago, when a cousin told me about
> it. As soon as I got a 386 capable of running it, I started using it
> and since then I just never stopped. The difference between then and
> now is that I use it for almost everything now, and those days it
> was just a very interesting experiment.
> Now that my C coding skills are more and more improving, free
> software is starting to be more interesting for me too, because I
> can actually understand the code. :)

Philosophy & Procedures

Wilmer understands Debian's philosophy and agrees with it, he could
answer my questions about some licensing problems, NMUs, ways of
handling the BTS and more.

Tasks & Skills

He packaged Axel, a download accelerator, which is already in Debian
for some time. He also packaged nm-notify, which I will upload soon
(in the meantime, his package can be found at

I am pleased with his packaging, both packages were well done.


I recommend that Wilmer be accepted as a Debian maintainer.
