   TorrentFlux: This is my first Debian package, which I started
   working on in December 2005. I have used the program frequently
   since May 2005 and so it made a good choice for my first package. I
   am also very familiar with php and mysql, both used by this
   program, and my skills with python aren't bad.

   This package was accepted into the Debian archive on April 2nd,
   2006, and is currently being sponsored by Micah Anderson.

   BitTornado: After working with Micah Anderson on the torrentflux
   package, he mentioned that he would like some help maintaining the
   BitTornado package, with the possibility of taking over the package
   in time. I agreed, and have collaborated with him through an Alioth
   Project using SVN since February 2006. I am now a co-maintainer of
   this package.

   libphp-adodb: I started doing some work on this package as it is a
   dependency for my torrentflux package. I noticed that it was in
   need of some work, as it had multiple security vulnerabilities, and
   was several upstream versions out of date. The maintainer was
   unresponsive, and had recently orphaned most of his packages.

   I prepared a NMU to update the package in unstable to the current
   upstream version, which fixed 9 of the 11 bugs it had including all
   security problems. However, this NMU had to be submitted by
   Micah Anderson, as sponsored NMUs of a new upstream are not well

   I also prepared a backport of the 4 security fixes to the version
   in stable. This was accepted into stable-security by
   Martin Schulze.

   The security fixes I prepared for stable were then used by
   Martin Schulze to fix the 2 security bugs that also existed in

   The package has since been orphaned due to inactivity by the
   maintainer, and so I have adopted it and brought it up to date for
   the release of Etch.

3. Philosophy and Procedures
   Cameron's first AM was Ricardo Javier Cardenes Medina who did most
   of the NM process with him. I've taken over for the last 10%.
   Cameron has a good understanding of Debian's philosophy and
   procedures and answered all questions about the social contract,
   DFSG, BTS, etc. in a good way. Cameron committed to uphold the SC
   and DFSG in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP.

4. Tasks and Skills
   Cameron has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   Cameron is maintainer of several bittorrent packages. All packages
   are in good shape. Cameron also answered all questions regarding
   T&S without problems.

5. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept Cameron as a Debian Developer.
