2. Background
  Applicant writes:

   I am a 23 year old student at DTU (Technical University of Denmark),
   where I study Software Technology. I learned about Debian GNU/Linux
   through my brother and installed in on my systems some time late 2004 or
   early 2005. I did also use Ubuntu on my laptop for a year or so, but
   eventually went back to Debian.
   During 2004/2005ish to 2007 I spent a lot of my spare time
   creating small (game) scripts for a server I was playing on. 
   My passion for the game eventually died out when my skills eventually
   outgrew the language.
   I tried to find an open source project to join, but never found the
   time to actually join a project. In 2009 I stumbled across a small open source
   project, which I used to generate a few graphs for an assignment. I noticed 
   that the program had	not been packed for Debian and I decided to try 
   to package it.
   My contributions are currently limited to Java packages (modulo my first package, 
   which is a C program). I think the most well known package I have worked 
   on is "eclipse" and about 10-15 of the packages I have worked on has been a 
   means to this end. Together with the rest of the eclipse team, 
   I expect to maintain some of the add-ons to eclipse. 

   I currently also have my eye on devscripts, lintian and dpkg. But devscripts 
   may be enough to satisfy my needs for writing perl.

   My current "long terms" goals are getting eclipse-cdt fixed get the Java
   Policy into betteri shape.

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

4. Tasks and Skills
  Niels has a good understanding of the technical side of Debian.
  He is maintainer of several packages, mostly package inside pkg-java team
  sponsored by several DDs and he is already doing a great job as DM.
  He provides RC bug fixes and his packages are in good quality.

5. Recommendation
  I recommend to accept Niels Thykier as a Debian Developer.
