2. Background
   Applicant writes:

I’m eighteen years old, currently living and attending school in
Innsbruck, Austria.  I got started with GNU/Linux when I was still in
grammar school.  My father, an IT teacher, was keen on finding out what
this free software thing was all about, and I got pretty much sucked in.
In the beginning, I used SuSE and Mandrake (when they were still called
this way), but over time I found out that Debian is the distribution I’m
most comfortable with.  I got started with Sarge in 2005, in 2007 I was
allowed to provide a PXE-based installation at school (to learn
something new myself and to bring GNU/Linux to a broader audience).

I soon started to appreciate not only the OS, but also the community
behind Debian.  I decided that I wanted to give something back; my
involvement as a contributor finally started in 2008.

I’m currently interested in maintaining (kbd, odtwriter, libgit-ruby,
ticgit) and co-maintaining packages.  I enjoy QA work as well.  I’m a
member of the pkg-ruby-extras and pkg-kbd teams.  I’ve also stated my
interest in joining the Debian Marketing team as soon as it gets “real.”
And finally, the Debian Live subproject is something I want to take part
in sooner or later, as I’ve relied on it more than once and am riveted
by its inner workings.

   Search engines say:

There are a lot of persons with his name.  It doesn't look like our
guy is among the most popular of them.

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

4. Tasks and Skills
   Michael has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   He is maintainer of

     libdb-ruby (team)
     ruby-gnome2 (team)
     ruby-pkg-tools (team)
     kbd (team)
     libsvm-ruby (team)
     libxslt-ruby (team)
     python-docutils (team)

   All packages are in good shape.

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

5. Recommendation
   I recommend to accept Michael Schutte as a Debian Developer.
