Re: DM application of Rodolfo García Peñas (kix)

Hash: SHA1

Hello NM,

I'm writing in support of Rodolfo Garcia Penas for Debian Maintainer

I've been working with Rodolfo as he has significantly contributed to
upstream wmaker projects and adopted several orphaned and RC buggy
Debian packages. Over the past few months, we have made close to a
dozen uploads to Debian together (everything from bug fixing, to
adopting, to completely reworking bit-rotting packaging, to new
upstream versions, to cherry picking upstream bug fixes). He has
carefully gone through bug reports and submitted numerous patches
upstream which he eventually merged into Debian. His work is too
numerous to describe in this email, but a picture is worth 1000 words
[1]. His contributions are well received upstream and has been given
VCS access to wmaker and various upstream projects related to wmaker.

He has learned a lot about Debian packaging and is quite technically
proficient. As DM, I expect that he will continue to learn the Debian
process of package management since he has actively sought advice on
how to request package removals and deal with bugs affecting his
packages. He is respectful and actively pursues perfection following
Debian policy and procedures. He is good to work with.

In summary, he has greatly improved the status of wmaker ecosystem in
Debian, and has pushed his work upstream. He is a good candidate for
DM, and with time and more experience, a good candidate for DD.
