I am also Daobing's AM.  He has completed the P&P steps, which means
(among other things) that I'm confident that he will not do malicious
things to the archive.  

I've uploaded lunar-applet with DM-Upload-Allowed set.  I requested no
changes for it.  For the previous upload, I requested only minor things
(without which the package would have been quite acceptable as well).

He has not yet completed the T&S steps (the delay in which is mostly on
my side), but I'm happy to trust him with maintaining a package that was
in good shape before (which is what the DM system is for).

On the social side, I find him pleasant to work with and patient (an
important thing IMO).  In his bug reports, he should be a bit more
talkative IMO.  He usually fixes things without saying that he's going
to.  If that happens really fast, it's fine, but #443380 should have
gotten a response, for example.

Then again, I think it's also a responsibility of the DD who set
DM-Upload-Allowed to continue monitoring the package a bit, so this
shouldn't be a big problem.  I also think this will improve during the
rest of his NM process.

Overall I think it would be good for Debian if Daobing would be a DM.
Personally I already have one package which he should be able to upload
without waiting for me IMO.
