   I studied mathematics at the University of Technology, Vienna, and did
   use computers only for academic work, as I didn't have one at home. When
   it was time to write my thesis I bought my first computer and Alex
   Zangerl, who studied with me - at this time already a seasoned PC
   hacker (in the good sense) helped me getting linux running in the first
   place. At this time it was AFAIR SuSE Linux 5.something.
   So more than a year ago first plans started to use the TeX live internal
   package management concept to generate Debian packages for TeX live.
   Well, nothing more about this, it is a long story, but something like
   one month ago these packages made it into Debian/experimental for now
   (see http://www.tug.org/texlive/debian.html for more details).
   In the course of the development of these packages I have actively
   participated in the development of the TeX Policy
   (http://people.debian.org/~frank/Debian-TeX-Policy/), the tex-common
   package, and general teTeX development. Furthermore, I have taken over
   the long quasi-orphaned texinfo package, and spinned off the cm-super
   package from the pts-tetex-cm-super package (with Maintainer approval)
   to get teTeX3 compliance. Furthermore I updated together with Florent
   Rougon the lmodern font pack which was orphaned. Finally I initiated the
   forming of a Debian TeX Task Force which should pool our forced for the
   support of TeX in Debian.
   I guess you got the idea about what area I am interested in, it is TeX,
   TeX and friends in Debian.
   Plans I want to accomplish: Puhhh, well ATM I have enough work to
   prepare packages of TeX live for upload to unstable ;-) Let's put it
   this way: I want that Debian has the most up-to-date and complete TeX
   support of all the distributions, and this is not `per se', but for me
   tha ability to read and write in my native language - and especially if
   it is *not* written in ASCII, not latinX - at least TeX documents,
   should be possible in Debian.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Norbert has a good understanding of Debian's Philosophy and
   Procedures. He was able to provide fine answer to all my questions about
   the Social Contract, the DFSG and the BTS.

3. Tasks and Skills
   Norbert is Maintainer of texinfo, cm-super, the texlive suite and some other
   packages in Debian.
   He answered my questions regarding T&S without problems.

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