Re: DM Application for Christian Holm Christensen

Hash: SHA1

Hello everybody,

the packaging of a complex software like ROOT is a great acheivement, for which
Christian desserves a lot of credit. I had the pleasure of giving him a very
modest help by doing test builds on ppc64 architecture, and was very pleased by
his attitude and responsivity. That he managed to leverage help from half a
dozen developpers on the debian-science mailing lists to perfomr the pre-upload
tests for ROOT on many architectures show his dedication and coordination

Since I have not dug in to the details of the Debian ROOT packages, I can not
comment much on the technical side, except to say that I have never heard
complains. I have looked at the BTS page of root-system, and noticed that the
NMU (translation and typos only) happened three weeks after the first bug was
reported, during the summer holidays, so I do not think that it is a sign of
relaxed behaviour. Anyway, NMU should be a way to help each other, not to cast
some blame. Furthermore, Christian is responsive on the later bugs, and
forwards issues Upstream. Lastly, Lenny is on freeze, so I do not find anything
wrong for not updating ROOT.

All of this to say that I warmly recommend Christian for DM and NM and DD.

Have a nice day,
