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. -- pub 4096R/0E4BD0AB 2003-03-18 <people.fccf.net/danchev/key pgp.mit.edu>
