3. Philosophy and Procedures

Miah agrees to uphold the Social Contract and the DFSG and accepts the
DMUP. He was able to answer all the usual questions about Debian
philosophy and procedures (gathered primarily from the various
templates I've seen). Most of his initial answers were great, and we
had a good conversation regarding the difference between main, contrib
and non-free.

4. Tasks and Skills

Miah has packaged gvd, the GNU Visual Debugger, and done a good job of
it. While initially, his package had some issues with his use of
automake and autoconf and a few minor issues, he was able to fix these

I asked Miah to package something without debhelper, and he re-packaged
gvd without debhelper, and did a great job of it.

5. Recommendation

I recommend that Miah Gregory be accepted as a Debian Developer.
