2. Background
   Applicant writes:

   Born in 1983, I'm currently 23 years old. I'm living in Nuernberg, GER. From
   2000 to 2001 I spent one year at the high school in Whitefish, MT, USA.
   Currently, I'm studying computer science at the Friedrich-Alexander-Univers=
   of Erlangen/Nuernberg. I'm also working as a student trainee at a small
   software company doing software development. I am an active member of our
   local volunteer fire department. In my free time I enjoy practicing and
   refereeing judo and I like all kinds of things related to photography.

   I got to know Linux some time in 2002. Quickly, I became addicted and I was
   fascinated by the Free Software movement. I somehow happened to get to know
   Debian and it did not last long until this was the only system I was working
   on. I love Debian because of its simplicity and power and simply for being =
   ultimate operating system :-) I'm contributor and author of some open source
   software packages, like collectd (http://collectd.org/) and sims
   (http://tokkee.org/sims/). I prefer Perl and C as programming languages.

   I started working for Debian by packaging and backporting some software for=
   my own purposes. In December 2005, I began contributing to the backports.org
   archive. About half a year later, I managed to get the collectd package in a
   reasonable state and have it uploaded to the debian.org archive. I try to h=
   people with Debian and open source software in various IRC channels, some
   mailing lists and at events of our local Linux user group (http://lusc.de/).
   Currently, I'm the maintainer of a couple of packages in the debian.org
   archive. In the future, I want to keep packaging interesting software. I'm
   also very interested in non-x86 and non-Linux ports of Debian but have not
   done any work there yet. Most importantly I want to help to keep Debian a f=
   and powerful operating system. I'm volunteering because I want to give back=
   and help improve the system I'm using myself.

   Sebastian is well known in the german debian and the international OpenSource Community. 
   He did noteable contributions to projects like Debian, RRDTool and Collectd. 

3. Philosophy and Procedures
   Sebastian has a good understanding of Debian's philosophy and procedures
   and answered all my questions about the social contract,
   DFSG, BTS, etc. in a good way. Sebastian committed to uphold the SC and DFSG
   in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP.

4. Tasks and Skills
   Sebastian has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   Sebastian is maintainer of several packages in Debian like collectd
   (where he is also an important part of the development team). Or rrdtool 
   (where he submitted several patches and bugfixes upstream) and other packages. 
   Most of them were sponsored by me, or even co-maintained by me (like rrdtool).

   All packages are in a good shape and very well maintained. Sebastian is also a 
   contributor to backports.org. 

   Sebastian also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems
   and provided patches for RC bugs.

5. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept Sebastian as a Debian Developer as soon as possible :). 

   And by the way: Happy Birthday Sebastian :).
