2. Background
   Applicant writes:
My first contact with GNU/Linux was with Suse when I was still in secondary
school - a friend who studied at the local university introduced me to it.

When I first tried Debian after reading much about it, Potato was the current
stable release - I still keep the cds :-)
The only other Distributions I came in contact with are Knoppix and Ubuntu.

Professionally I work as software engineer and server administrator (Debian of
course) but my main private interesst which lead to my current involvement in
Debian is my phone - the Openmoko Freerunner.

After using Debian on it since the beginning in april 2009 I began to package
the vala implementation of the freesmartphone.org software stack named
cornucopia. After doing this on my own and only showing my progress to the
pkg-fso team I was invited to join in june 2009 by Luca Capello. Since then I
tried to stay above the cornucopia<->vala breakage [they share much
development and with each new vala version something breaks] and improve the
Freerunners usability.
As part of this I often chase vala bugs which are part of a young and fast
evolving language [see #547204 for something were I didn't have sucess so far]

Since december 2009 I'm also Debian-Maintainer.

In retrospect I don't regret a bit the change to the Freerunner and I wouldn't
want to change back to any featurephone or  smartphone running anything but

Apart from the freesmartphone.org stuff I maintain agtl a tool for paperless
geocaching and libnl2 a snapshot of the current libnl development tree needed
as a build-dependency of libfsobasics.

All the stuff is available on

Future plans include improving my (everyone elses) phone experience on the
Freerunner. Also the Google Nexus One is released in some days in germany and
as I have read it should be fairly easy to get it to run Debian nativly.
Another intresting gadget I have my eye on is the txtr ebook reader which also
is not restricted and should boot any GNU/Linux distribution off the sd-card.
[and it also includes a gsm modem].

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

4. Tasks and Skills
   Heiko has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
   He is maintainer of various freesmartphone.org-related packages (sponsored
   by his advocate, Steffen Moeller), as well as the agtl, libnl2, and
   vala-dbus-binding-tool packages.

   All packages are in good shape.

   Heiko also answered my other questions regarding T&S without problems.

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

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
