2. Background
   Applicant writes:

   I'm Tiago Bortoletto Vaz, born in November 1979 in Salvador, Bahia, northeast
   of Brazil. In 1999 I started studying Computer Science at the Federal
   University of Bahia (UFBA)[0], where I had my first contact with GNU/Linux
   systems. Most part of my student life I volunteered as sysadmin for the
   Mathematics Institute of UFBA. At that time we had only two labs available for
   CS, Maths and Statistics students, both equipped with 486 machines and Windows
   NT (tm) system.
   [0] http://www.ufba.br
   One day someone stole all the hard drives from these machines so the labs had
   to be closed. The lack of resources gave us a big challenge, which also gave us
   the opportunity to introduce the free software power to the University. After
   some research and several hacks we were able to give back to students the labs
   running a creative solution based on Debian Potato, LTSP and IceWM[1]. It was
   the beginning of a free software revolution in the University, which has formed
   nice hackers activists since then.
   [1] http://wiki.dcc.ufba.br/GAVRI/LTSP
   During my years at the University I could understand the power of software
   freedom and open standards. I started understanding the GNU philosophy and
   looking for a GNU/Linux or BSD distribution which could provide me freedom and
   a good quality without any commercial interest behind. I got very impressed
   with the high quality standards of FreeBSD and Debian, mainly because of the
   ports and APT systems. However, by reading the Debian Social Contract I became
   convinced that Debian was the kind of project which would offer me the reason
   to keep myself excited about working with computers.
   In 2004 I joined a huge social inclusion project of the Science and Technology
   Council for the State of Bahia[2], leading the IT team. We built 300 public
   Internet centers running a Debian based solution for marginalized communities
   around the State. This work lasted 2 years and became the subject of my
   undergraduate research project[3].

   The year I got really involved in Debian was 2004, mainly after attending
   Debconf4, which was held in Porto Alegre, Brazil. My first experience as a
   Debian contributor was translating debconf pot files. As it happened before the
   pseudo-urls infrastructure, many of them have been overwritten by other
   translators and debian-l10n-brazilian team. Some occurrences can still be found
   by searching for "Last-Translator: Tiago Bortoletto Vaz" on the Internet. Still
   in 2004 I translated the beautiful apt-howto to portuguese and started
   maintaining packages in Debian. My first one was ewiki, which I asked for
   removal in 2007[4]. Currently I (co-)maintain 14 packages and there is one in
   the new queue and one ITP waiting for sponsor[5]. Most of them are sponsored by
   Otavio Salvador, to whom I'm really thankful for being a great technical mentor
   and my main reference regarding social behavior in free software communities.

   Talking about jobs again, I can say I'm happy for having the chance of working
   with free software for helping minorities. My last professional activity was
   being the CIO of Safernet Brasil[6], a NGO which deals with crimes against human
   rights committed through the Internet. Safernet became very popular due to our
   stressful fight against the world's largest Internet company, which has
   insistently refused to obey the Brazilian laws regarding online distribution of
   hate crimes and child pornography contents[7]. By the way, we've won the
   battles up to now[8][9][10]; using, spreading and producing free software for
   all our tasks[11].

   In 2008 I was invited by the Federal Senate to join the Parliamentary
   Investigative Committee (CPI) on Child Abuse. Worked for 8 months on
   investigations in partnership with a select group formed by Federal Police
   commissioners, prosecutors and senators. Since then I've been participating in
   the Brazilian taskforce in charge of proposing new policies and procedures
   related to the regulation of Internet activities in Brazil.
   Bringing back Debian to the subject, I've attended the Debian Conference since
   2004. I usually code during Debcamp, also give a hand to the video team and
   have fun with photo stuff. In 2006 I worked with Vagrant during Debconf and
   coded the i18n infrastructure for ltsp package. At Debconf8 I worked with
   Daniel Baumman on live-helper, when he unexpectedly asked me to join the NM
   process! :) In December 2008 I became DM being supported by three DDs.
   I'm not an upstream developer at all. However, since I've adopted apticron in
   2006[12] I've made a lot of improvements by myself and feel like its upstream
   nowadays (actually I'm very happy to know apticron usage has grown in a such
   way that it has even beating the legendary cowsay in popcon :))
   [12] http://packages.debian.org/changelogs/pool/main/a/apticron/current/changelog
   I'm pretty involved in local free software communities in Brazil. I've
   participated as organizer and/or speaker in several events such as the Free
   Software International Forum (FISL) and the Latin-American Free Software
   Conference (Latinoware). I'm also leading BrDesktop project, the former
   Debian-BR-CDD. BrDesktop is a Debian Pure Blend designed for Brazilian desktop
   [13] http://brdesktop.org
   BrDesktop, Live-helper, general packaging and voluteering for Debconf are my
   current tasks in Debian. For the near future I intend to get involved in
   multimedia stuff. I'm also very interested in the Pure Blend concept and
   in how to better integrate it to the Project. I'll definitely be very happy
   mentoring new people and sponsoring packages to Debian. I believe Debian is one
   of the most effective world-changing movement nowadays and I feel very glad for
   dedicating my time to it.
   I have a set of almost serious hobbies. Currently, the most active ones are
   photographing and playing the guitar. In fact I'm studying music to join a jazz
   performance bachelor's program soon.

   Google says:
   Activity in Debian since several years.

3. Philosophy and Procedures
   Tiago 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. Tiago committed to uphold the SC and
   DFSG in his Debian work and accepts the DMUP.

4. Tasks and Skills
   Tiago has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   Tiago is the leader of the BrDesktop project, which is a Debian Pure
   Blend designed for Brazilian desktop users (http://brdesktop.org).
   He maintains the brdesktop packages, and also several other packages,
   fonts and icon themes.
   I have checked apticron, bbclone, blankon, the brdesktop* packages,
   dlg-new, epylog, gnome-extra-icons, manpages-pt and nuovo and they
   are all in good shape. Some of them are starting to show some age,
   but he is now taking care of it.
   Tiago also answered my other questions regarding T&S without
   problems. During the NM process I sponsored his NMU of Rails to fix

5. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept Tiago as a Debian Developer.
