I am a 20 year old student from Norway, currently studying for a
master degree (second year, of five) in communication technology at
the Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU),
Trondheim. I came to Linux in 1997 (I think), after having read a lot
about it (using Linux as only operating system on my machines since
1999). My first installation was of Slackware 3.4, but after a few
years I heard about this `Debian' thing and saw it in action, being
particularily impressed by their packaging system (then only
controllable via dpkg and dselect :-) ), leading to a switch (or
rather, a gradual migration) to Debian.
After a while, I understood how much work was put into the packaging
and integration of these systems, and wanted to give something
back. Thus my intent to become a DD. :-) (Also, it's usually a lot
easier to get problems fixed if you can do it yourself :-) )

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Steinar has a very good understanding of Debian's Philosophy and
   Procedures. He answered all my Questions about Social Contract,
   DFSG, BTS etc very well (and in record time!).

3. Tasks and Skills
   Steinar is the maintainer of amoeba (contrib), amoeba-data
   (non-free), mozilla-locale-no-nb (main), all Packages in the Debian
   archive sponsored by Tollef Fog Heen. I inspected amoeba and it was
   very good technically. I had him package amoeba without the use of
   debhelper, which he was easily able to do. In addition Steinar was
   able to answer my (well, Joerg's) Tasks & Skills questions very

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