  i've been using GNU/Linux for about 6 or 7 years now. i'm a student in
  electric engineering, mostly interested in asynchronous electronics
  (asynch cpu design using VHDL, implemented in FPGAs). I'm also
  interested in building free (still as in freedom) hardware (see
  I've being trying to use GHDL and IVI for my VHDL compilation and
  simulation needs, but failed so far (briefly, it's because the support

  Piracy, a domain from which i've retired 5 years ago, brought my
  attention on GNU/Linux and free software in general. The more i got to
  know free software and GNU/Linux (the moral motivations, cooperation

2. Philosophy and Procedures
Pascal has an adequate understanding of Debian's philosophy and
procedures.  He provided acceptable answers to all my questions about
the Social Contract, DFSG, and other Debianisms.  He has a strong
understanding of licensing issues and was even able to accurately point
out problems in the convoluted graphviz license.

3. Tasks and Skills
Pascal is the maintainer of:

  movixmaker-2 (sponsored by Wolfgang Sourdeau)

His package currently has 0 open bugs; previous bugs filed against the
package were quickly fixed.

Pascal also answered my questions regarding T&S without problems.

4. Recommendation
I recommend Pascal as a Debian developer.
