     Well, I am a student from the Ecole Centrale Paris, which was the
     original home of vlc. Hence, I met there people from the
     linux/debian world, and get friends who are either debian
     developpers or candidates, mostly zorglub and adn. I installed my
     first distribution tree years ago, was debian, and still is :) I
     quickly liked the powerfull package manager, the seriousness of
     the project, and more over the volounteering backbone which I
     found the more important part of the project.
     I did a project for the school which was the design and
     implementation of a streaming solution for our webradio, and got
     to use unpackaged applications, mostly peercast, so I started
     making packages for it.
     Then, I started a PhD in computer science, and met smimram, that
     convinced me of getting into the NM process, and advocated me.
     So far, my contributions to the project have been packaging of
     different applications, such as mediawiki, peercast, linuxdcpp ...
     You can find the whole liste at the usual place:
     Then, my goals for the project would be to help the debian OS to
     be more and more usable. This does not allways mean user
     friendly, but also to try to have the more functionnalities and
     applications that would be needed in a complete and universal OS,
     with respect to the debian free software principles of course.
     This was my main concern for packaging applications like
     mediawiki, peercast and linuxdcpp.

2. Philosophy and Procedures
   Romain has a good understanding of Debians Philosophy and
   Procedures. He answered all my Questions about the Social Contract,
   DFSG, BTS etc. to my satisfaction.

3. Tasks and Skills
   Romain is Maintainer of linuxdcpp, php-getid3, peercast, kshutdown,
   ptunnel, and Co-Maintainer of the mediawiki packages. All packages
   are in a good shape. He also answered my other questions regarding
   T&S without problems.

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