I completely agree with Yaroslav; I also think that David has both the
technical and the social skills to become a DD.

Besides the already mentioned aspects I'd like to stress what I
- David has a careful and cautious approach, and prefers to ask for
  confirmation or re-check some documentation before doing something
  that might be wrong.
- As a consequence David's packages where always in good shape
  when I reviewed and uploaded them.
- David is very helpful and provides advice to others e.g. on

Right, we're working together in the pkg-perl team since 2008; David
not only cares for the six packages where he's in the Uploaders
field but has also helped to improve the "historically grown"
framework for building packages from multiple upstream tarballs
(before source format 3). He's also available for technical (or moral
:)) support on IRC.
