I've seen and liked (some) of your work and had good discussions with you at 
DebConf and Linuxtag and so I'm really happy you're now applying to become a 
DD. Sadly I don't think I qualify to "fully" advocate you (mostly simply 
because I haven't looked at your technical work closely), but from what I've 
seen from my distance I'm rather sure you'll find an advocate soon anyway!

Enjoy Debian & thanks for all your work!
