   Applicant writes:
      I have been running Debian GNU/Linux unstable since the end of 1997
      on a variety of servers, workstations, and laptops.  Since that
      time I have been working in research groups at the University of
      Melbourne (static analysis of Haskell programs) and the Université
      catholique de Louvain (development of Oz, peer to peer networking
      library for Mozart/Oz). In this time Debian has been invaluable to
      me, providing up to date and stable versions of nearly all the
      software I rely on for my research.

      At UCL I was / am one of the upstream developers of the Mozart/Oz
      system. When the previous maintainer, Marco Kuhlmann, put the
      Debian Mozart packages up for adoption in 2004 I took them over,
      with the help and encouragement of Pierre Machard, my sponsor.

     So, why do I want to be a DD:

       I want to pay back to Debian for the great help it has given me
       in both my personal and professional life.

       I am really interested in how the Debian project has succeeded
       socially, technically, and politically.  I want to be a part of
       it to help make sure it continues to succeed at all three levels.

       I want to improve Debian's support for the areas I am interested
       in (advanced programming languages, advanced networking /
       distribution models)

   Advocate Says:
      In July 2004, I was doing QA work and I discovered that  mozart  package
      was in bad shape. I saw that upstream provided a Debian package. At that
      time, I sent an email to Kevin  (17  July  2004)[1]  in  order  to  know
      whether he was interested in maintaining this package. Since 2004, I  am
      Kevin's sponsor. Kevin did a regular work on mozart's packaging and  had
      learnt how to work in our project.

      Kevin is interested in becoming a  Debian  maintainer[2].  He  plans  to
      maintain mozart and possibly other packages.

      He did regular work on mozart since July 2004. He reply quickly  to  bug
      repports and emails. Currently, the major issue  of  mozart  is  to  add
      support for amd64. Kevin is already working on the next release.

      Each time I reviewed Kevin packages, I did never found any major  issue.
      I strongly believe that Kevin has the required background  to  become  a
      Debian Developer.
