Re: DM application of Alexander Golovko

Hi there!

This is my advocacy for Alexander Golovko <alexandro@ankalagon.ru>.  I
hope I got it right, according to [1] and [2] a signed mail is the way
to go.  Please Cc: me on replies.

I confirm that Alexandro is hardly working on Bacula and he was the main
force behind the inclusion of a more up-to-date version of Bacula in
wheezy [3].

After starting submitting patches to the BTS [4][5] (then forwarded
upstream), also an RFS for a related package [6], he spontaneously asked
on the pkg-bacula-devel@ mailing list about the Debian workflow [7] and
I helped him understanding how the team works, including details about
the packaging itself (e.g. clearing some parts related to Policy & Co.
or working through git-buildpackage).

He quickly reacted to my reply: I should admit that without his work [8]
I could have been lost.  He acted on old and new bugs, always doing a
very-well documented work and using the BTS accordingly (tags & Co.).
He has also started integrating the Ubuntu changes [9].  Lately, he
asked for a freeze exception for the latest upstream version [10], again
doing an excellent work at answering questions.

I thus strongly support his application, he has a clear understanding of
the Debian universe and he has always been very keen on learning new
(ways to do) things whenever needed.

Thx, bye,
