I am a part-time hacker on (largely) open source software, when I'm not busy
being a student. I have been involved with many aspects of many projects -
maintaining apache2 and most of KDE within Debian, as well as co-maintaining
XFree86; upstream work on several components of KDE, including a small amount of
work on the build system; and also minor co-ordination work within the Xwin
project (now mostly absorbed by freedesktop.org). I also spend quite some time
co-ordinating with the Gentoo and Red Hat XFree86 maintainers to try and keep
our patch sets quite in sync with each other, and share the workload - I set up
packagers-list@xwin.org with Mike Harris.

I was first introduced to Linux by my father at age 12 - although he was/is a
rabid NT fan, he encouraged me to give something different a shot. "Something
different" turned out to be Slackware 2.2 from an InfoMagic CD; although I
didn't like Slackware and spent all night playing paranoia because I couldn't
get X working, I was converted and bought Red Hat Linux 5.1 the next day,
eventually transitioning to Debian.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Daniel has a good understanding of Debians Philosophy and
   Procedures. He answered all my Questions about Social Contract,
   DFSG, BTS etc. in a good way.

3. Tasks and Skills
   Daniel is Maintainer of libapache2-mod-xslt and dbtcp.
   He also answered my other Questions regarding T&S without problems.
   He also helps Branden with the X Packages which are anything but easy
   to maintain.

   I also got this in a mail from Fabio Fabio Massimo Di Nitto:
	i am writing to you since you are Daniel's AM.
I have been working with him in several occasion even before he applied
(this last time) to become DD so if you want you can include these few
lines in your last report for him.

For my personal experience working with him in different situation I
perceived Daniel always as a fast, reactive and entusiatic guy. He is a
nice and funny guy to work with.

Technically talking I think he is more than ok. I based some of my IPv6
packages on his X4.3 packages with quite a good succees considering that
it is not a trivial package to handle, taking care of several porting
issues (including m68k, mips, hppa in coordination with another NM -
Jochen Friedrich).

In general i would really like to see Daniel as part of the community.

3a. Advocate is writing (DAM)
He's been helping out tremendously with the XFree86 4.3.0 packaging
effort and appears to be at least as reponsible and clueful as the
average Debian developer.

4. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept him as a Debian Developer.
