   | I have been programming since 1983 and started publishing freeware about
   | 10 years later.  At that time I was somewhat aware of free software (I
   | had seen RMS in TV documentaries) but I didn't feel able to get involved
   | in it, as I lacked an Internet connection and there didn't seem to much
   | that would run on my computer.
   | Once I bought my first PC in 1997 I installed Red Hat Linux and started
   | making minor changes to it, beginning that day with the addition of my
   | network card's IDs to the appropriate driver.  I contributed patches to
   | Linux, PINE (though I realise that's not strictly free), trn and various
   | other programs.  A year or so later I had had enough of the Red Hat
   | distribution and switched to Debian.
   | Around the same time I began my professional programming career and in
   | the time since then my programming efforts have mostly been directed
   | towards my work.  I have made use of the Boehm garbage collector on two
   | separate projects and my respective employers were happy for me to send
   | changes back, including both bug fixes and new features.  However, for
   | the most part I worked on proprietary software.  At home, however, I
   | have used Debian almost exclusively since 1998 and have felt that I
   | should be contributing back to it.
   | In the last few years I became socially involved with local Debian
   | developers and users, participated in BSPs, and so became more familiar
   | with Debian packaging and development infrastructure.  In 2005 I found a
   | good software project that was surprisingly absent from Debian, and
   | packaged that as sgt-puzzles.  I believe I have done a reasonable job of
   | keeping this package up to date and dealing with bug reports relating to
   | it.
   | I attended Debconf 5, which made me very enthusiastic about getting more
   | involved.  When I found that there was no plan to compile the video
   | recordings for DC5 onto DVD, I resolved to make this happen, and did so
   | over the next few months, using free software and images, and releasing
   | everything necessary to reproduce my build process.  I found some parts
   | of this sufficiently frustrating that I am now working on a new
   | front-end for creating DVD videos (provisionally called WebDVD), which I
   | will propose to include in Debian in due course.  I also found and
   | submitted fixes for various bugs in dvdauthor.  I will be a member of
   | the video team for this year's conference.
   | While I was at Debconf, Steve McIntyre suggested I do some work on
   | mkisofs and debian-cd to speed up the Debian CD/DVD production process.
   | This is ongoing but some of my changes to mkisofs are already included
   | in the Debian package.  Steve also encouraged me to apply to NM.

   Nothing was requested to be kept private.

   Google shows some good security work, and a general interest in open
   source software.

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

3. Tasks and Skills
   Ben is the Maintainer of:
   maypole (in NEW queue)
   all Packages in Debian (sponsored by myself).
   He also answered my other Questions regarding T&S with minimal
   prompting on a couple of questions.

   I checked the package sgt-puzzles (new version) which was uploaded to
   dak.ganneff.de sucessfully. There was no problems with it, and it's
   been uplaoded to ftp-master.
4. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept him as a Debian Developer.
