  I have been using Linux for almost 6 years and been a Linux kernel
  developer for 4 years. I have a Bachelor of Engineering degree in
  Computer Science and Technology from Indian Institute of Technology,
  Roorkee, India, and I have a Master's degree in Computer Science from
  Colorado State University. I have been working as a Software Engineer
  since 1991. My work in the last 13 years has been primarily in the
  area of kernel design and implementation. I started using open source
  software back in 1988 starting with gcc. I strongly believe in the
  principles of open source software. I became familar with Linux around
  1998 and started using it at home. When HP started a Linux lab, I
  moved to this lab and was one of the early members of this lab. Today
  Linux is not just a hobby but my profession as well. I have
  contributed code to SCSI subsystem in Linux kernel. I am also the
  original author and maintainer of HCDP serial console driver in Linux
  kernel. I am also the author and upstream maintainer for "prctl"
  tool. I have participated actively in establishing standards for Linux
  features in a Telco environment. I am a founding member of OSDL
  Carrier Grade Linux Working Group
  <http://www.osdl.org/lab_activities/carrier_grade_linux> and was the
  first chairperson for Proof-of-Concept technical sub-committee. I
  intend to continue working on Linux even if my job description were to

  Where I feel I can make contribution to Debian is in ongoing
  maintenance of "prctl" package, providing kernel patches and
  associated userspace packages for additional functionality (for
  example evlog), helping test, troubleshoot and debug various other
  debian packages. An important part of my job is to put together Debian
  based solutions. Doing this exposes me to multiple debian packages
  which I then test as part of a solution.  I am a strong believer in
  Open source principles and the Debian social contract is exactly in
  line with my own beliefs. I intend to keep as much of my work as
  possible in line with open source philosophy, and hence debian social
  contract as well. Since I use Debian on my desktop, laptop and server,
  I am very interested in keeping Debian not only free but highly
  functional as well.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
Khalid has an excellent understanding of Debian's philosophy and
procedures.  He provided acceptable answers to all my questions about
the Social Contract, DFSG, and other Debianisms.

3. Tasks and Skills
Khalid is the maintainer of:

  prctl (co-maintained with Bdale Garbee)

Khalid also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems.

4. Recommendation
I recommend Khalid as a Debian developer.
