    Let's test if its a version 4 or greater key
    Key is ok
    Check for key expire stuff
    Key has no expiration date set, nothing to check.

    My first Linux expereince was back in 92 or 93 - me and a friend tried
    to compile a kernel on one of the early Ygdrassil distributions.
    Wasn't easy. I've been actively sysadmining Linux machines since
    around 1996. My first real free software contribution was on the Wine
    project, where I took the task of adding BiDirectional support (i.e. -
    support for langauges such as Hebrew and Arabic). Search for my name
    at http://www.winehq.org/site/who for more info on that.

    Since then I took on several other tasks, some of which I'm actually
    main (usually sole) maintainer. Most prominant of these is rsyncrypto
    (http://sf.net/projects/rsyncrypto), which is a file encryption
    program. It's uniqueness lies in the fact that files encrypted with
    rsyncrypto maintain their wire transfer efficiency when synched with
    rsync. In other words, the local changes to the plain text files
    result in bounded changes to the encrypted file. Rsyncrypto is
    available under the GPL.

   Taking a look at google revealed that Shachar is contributing to the 
   open source for a long time and is very active on keeping up the open 
   source idea. 

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Shachar always demonstrated a very good understanding of Debians Philosphy 
   and Procedes and answered all my questions in a good way. 

3. Tasks and Skills
    Shachar has a strong understanding of the all questions asked in the T&S
    part. He is maintainer of argtable2, ryncrypto and sshpass all in a good 
    shape and sponsered by me and other DDs. 

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