2. Philosophy and Procedures
Alexander has a thorough understanding of Debian's philosophy and
procedures.  He provided acceptable answers to all my (actually,
Duncan's) questions about the Social Contract, DFSG, BTS, etc.

3. Tasks and Skills
Alexander is the maintainer of selflinux (originally packaged by hand,
and then converted to use debhelper).  He did a very nice job answering
my T&S questions.

4. Recommendation
I recommend Alexander's acceptance as a Debian developer.
