Hi all,

I hereby want to advocate Niels Thykier for Debian Developer
position and, at the same time, I'm a also supporting his declaration to 
became Debain Maintainer (from Message-ID: <[🔎] 4BA2AC2E.60308@thykier.net>).

Niels is one of the main contributor of debian pkg-java team (co-maintains at 
least 30 packages). He is member of this team since at least August 2009 and 
is doing a great work : 
- gives very detailled status of his work [0]
- takes care of licencing problems [1]
- maintains some really important package [2] (his last upload just fix dozen 
of really old bugs in eclipse !)
- is friendly and efficient

His packages were always in a really good shape, just ready to review and 

Giving him the Debian Maintainer status (and then Debian Developper) will help 
him to get his packages uploaded without waiting from some free timeslot from 
pkg-java team members :)

Keep up your good work Niels !
