My experiences while cooperating with Kęstutis are similar to Christian's ones.
I've helped Kęstutis working on the freedict packages, and did sponsored
uploads of opendict and opendict-lingvosoft.  Kęstutis has the needed skills,
is cooperative and responsive.  He has done good work for Debian.  I am
absolutely confident that Kęstutis being a Debian Maintainer will be good for
Debian and Free Software.

BTW, Kęstutis is still in the NM-queue, see
https://nm.debian.org/nmstatus.php?email=kebil%40kaunas.init.lt .

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