Felix has both excellent technical skills and social skills.  He's polite
and motivated, and good at dealing with people and responding to bug
reports [1].

He's very capable technically.  GRUB isn't an easy package to maintain,
specially when it's the first one, and at first he wasn't familiar with all
the procedures we use, but he's proven to be a fast learner, resourceful,
and able to figure things out.  He has gradually become aquainted with
GRUB's source code and overall design.

He's also earned the trust of GRUB upstream maintainers, has commit access
in the upstream repository and has helped them over a number of things (fixing
bugs, merging patches, etc).

I hereby advocate Felix' application to become a Debian Maintainer.

[1] A task which, in the case of GRUB, sometimes requires an infinite amount
    of patience.
