I have been sponsoring gxemul, replaceit, and whohas occasionally. My 
observations are that Jonathan's work is sound, safe and very predictable. 

Some examples include: 
* cherry-picking important patch from gxemul VCS and backporting it for the 
version in lenny (though he just had adopted it back then); 
* improved the general gxemul package quality by using debhelper7's dh when 
asked to do so (i.e. able to dig and understand packaging documentation and 
apply it as well);
* worked with several DD's, users, and the upstream on extending whohas (as 
could be seen in BTS). 

I believe he would be able to take care of these three packages (at least) 
himself alone, so I recommend DM status.
