I'm hereby advocating Dominique Dumont (domi.dumont@free.fr, key id
49AB2B6C) as a Debian Developer.

Dominique is a member of the Debian Perl Team since December 2008,
and is at the time of writing (co-)maintaining ~15 packages. I've
closely worked together with him, and uploaded many of them; other
members of the pkg-perl group have also worked with him and can add
their experiences.

For some of the packages Dominique maintains he is also upstream; I'm
mentioning this not because they are his pet projects but on the
contrary they are valuable contributions to Debian as a whole where
he is constantly investing time to improve them (keywords
"Config::Model", package upgrades, DEP5 parser, ...).

I believe that Dominique has the technical abilities to be a DD. He's
an experienced developer and has in his time in the perl group gained
enough pratice to upload packages on his own.

It's a pleasure to work with Dominique, he's always open for
suggestions, eager to learn more and improve, and help others. - And
I also enjoy spending time with him in real life :)

I'm convinced that Dominique shares the values of the Debian project,
and that he's ready to become a full member of our project.

[Formal note: This advocation is really for DD and not for DM; since
the DM concept doesn't work in its current way for packaging teams we
are not using it in the pkg-perl group.]
