Re: DM applicant Niko Tyni

I heartily recommend Niko Tyni <ntyni@iki.fi> for DM.

He has singlehandedly led the Request Tracker "team" [1] for the past 
year, handling upstream upgrades, working with translation teams, 
migration of debian packaging in Alioth SVN and a host of other issues.

To be frank, at this point, Niko's knowldge and experience packaging a 
large webapp far exceed mine.  :)  My sponsorship of the actual 
request-tracker and rtfm uploads is purely a formality at this point. 
The ability for Niko to upload packages himself is long overdue.

[1] The rest of us on the "team" have been embarassingly inactive.  Niko 
has been doing all the work.
