2. Background:

  My name is Philipp Hübner, I am 20 years old and live in Erkelenz
  (Germany), which is between Mönchengladbach and Aachen and close to the
  Dutch border. At the moment I'm doing an apprenticeship as an IT system

  In the beginning of 2006 my IT teacher asked me if I were interested in
  learning Linux. I instantly said yes, and so I came to the school's self
  learning center which was powered by Debian Edu and lead by Patrick
  Winnertz (winnie), who was about to finish school.
  And then a very steep way of learning how to use Debian began.

  One year later, January 2007, I did a two weeks work experience at
  credativ GmbH, which is specialised on Debian and OpenSource software
  and where many Debian Developers are working. I came to this work
  experience because the general manager of credativ, Michael Meskes, had
  originally the idea of running my schools's self learning center on
  OpenSource basis and tought the first students (winnie, white and more)
  how to use Debian (Edu).
  After the first week of my apprenticeship, Michael offered me a
  part time job next to school and an apprenticeship after finishing
  school, and well, I took both chances.
  This also improved my handling of the self learning center, which
  previously had given me the chance to do this work experience.
  The next 1.5 years I worked for credativ and learned much more about
  Debian and Linux in general, while finishing school with a very good
  Abitur. Then in August 2008 I began my apprenticeship.

  Back to Debian:
  I have learned very much in a very short time. At work I was surrounded
  by DD's anyway and Debian has become my only OS by now. So after private
  usage, public administration and usage at work the next logical step was
  to become personally involved in development. And with that I began in
  the second quarter of 2008.

  And now here I am. Maintaining several packages, reading plenty of
  mailing-lists, using the BTS, having done much testing for pkg-lustre
  and been one of the few people working actively on jbossas5 (pkg-jboss)
  for Debian.

  In the last months I have installed Debian (Edu) in several schools
  throughout Germany, mostly in Rhineland-Palatinate (referring to
  http://www.debian.org/News/2009/20090315 ).

  Since Debian Edu brought me here, I'm planning to join the team and help
  with future developement, using the experience I collected while
  installing and maintaining Debian in all those different schools.

3. Philosophy and Procedures:

  Philipp has a good understanding of Debian's philosophy and
  procedures and answered all my questions (be it template questions;
  patched template questions, thanks to Bernd; or any additional
  questions) about the social contract, DFSG, BTS, etc. in a good way.

  Philipp also committed to uphold the SC and DFSG in his Debian work and
  accepts the DMUP.

4. Tasks and Skills:

  Philipp's packages were in good shape already, and checking them was
  mostly about discussing details and best practices in depth. I
  believe he's ready to handle his packages or NMUs as expected from
  any Debian Developer. He worked on RC bugs/QA uploads and provided
  suitable fixed packages.

5. Recommendation:

  I wholeheartedly recommend to accept Philipp as a Debian Developer!
