   Applicant writes:

   I'm 21, married, currently living in Auckland, New Zealand. I work as a
   Network / Systems administrator for a company called MediaLab
   (www.medialab.co.nz). I also spend half my time contracted back to the
   WAND Network Research Group (www.wand.net.nz) at Waikato University
   (www.waikato.ac.nz) where I maintain and develop software for the CRCnet
   Wireless Research Network (www.crc.net.nz).=20

   My involvement in Free software started around 5 years ago and was
   nutured by my workmates and tutors as I progressed through University. I
   first used Debian around 4 and a half years ago and I have been
   maintaining Debian servers since then. Part of the CRCnet project has
   involved creating a derived Debian distribution for use on very low
   resource biscuit computers. I have gained significant experience
   recompiling and building a wide range of Debian packages through this.
   (The glibc and kernel packages scare me - but I got them working in the
    end!). Without the flexibility of Linux we would not have been able to
   build the CRCnet project. This has been an excellent example of the
   power of Free software for me.

   I am active in my Local LUG (www.wlug.org.nz) having served two years on
   the committee and I help out maintaining the wiki code base. I have
   written a logfile analyser for the Squid Web Proxy
   (www.crc.net.nz/software/srg.php). I also contribute to various other
   Free software projects as I have time (see 
   http://www.mattb.net.nz/software.php for details).

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Matt 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
   Matt is Maintainer of of phpwiki, srg and madwifi (as a team member), all
   Packages in Debian (sponsored by me and others).
   He showed a strong understanding of debian procedures and answered all
   questions to my full satisfaction. 

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