   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   I have been using Linux for more than 10 years, since I first saw
   a reference to it on a BBS. I installed SLS or Slackware and I said
   goodbye to Windows 3.1 shortly thereafter. I switched to RedHat
   sometime in those years but was extremely dissatisfied with the
   quality, and wiped it out with Debian on a whim.

   Using free software has benefited my development as a programmer.
   I think seeing a lot of examples of the Unix way of doing things
   has influenced how I solve problems. Learning how to use the tools
   has also allowed me to become much more efficient than those who
   have not.

   Right now I am working on network security software at a startup.
   We plan on using the Debian package system as a distribution
   mechanism. Fortunately that means everyone runs Debian and we attract
   the types of people who see that as a job feature.

   I would like to continue making improvements on the core smlnj
   packages and perhaps find some interesting ML applications to
   package. I first started this project because I wanted to write an
   ML program and saw that no sml/nj package was available in Debian.
   I have a few ideas for an application that uses the concurrent,
   networking, and gui libraries.  If it works out and people like it,
   I can package that someday and maybe get others interested in ML.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
-----------------------------
   Aaron 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
-------------------
   Aaron is Maintainer of smlnj, a Package in Debian.
   He also answered my other Questions regarding T&S without problems.
   
4. Recommendation
-----------------
   I recommend to accept him as a Debian Developer.
