Julian is a competent developer. He has a strong knowledge of Debian
packaging and works well within packaging teams.

In the Mono teams we recently undertook a large transition. Julian's
help was invaluable in test rebuilding all ~100 source packages for this
and triaging the results. He also provided some patches for issues. It
would have been much more difficult without his help. He maintains
keepass2 in our team and as far as I can tell is on top of issues and
interacting well with upstream.

I've seen his interactions with others in Ubuntu too. He seems to be a
go-to guy for Python packages over there.
