Since I've never uploaded a package Arno prepared, I'm sure he needs
more advocations than this. Nevertheless, let me point out that I have
met him in person (as my signature on his key suggests ;)) and found him
a reasonable and friendly person. He did a good job at the LinuxTag
event and advised guests not only properly but also with great interest
and knowledge. The past few weeks after that event, I had the chance of
working with him loosely in a way that I wrote some code and he
explained to me why it actually worked. :-P

Long story short, I can't say much about his involvement in Debian
long-term, but what I see right now is a talented young man, eager to
put up with problems, and very much knowing what he does. If you ask me,
find another one who's seen a few uploads of him and go for it.

Arno, you should consider applying for NM whenever you feel ready.
