AM report for Andrew Starr-Bochicchio

I recommend to accept Andrew Starr-Bochicchio as a Debian Developer.

1. Identification & Account Data
   First name:      Andrew
   Middle name:     -
   Last name:       Starr-Bochicchio
   Key fingerprint: 6EB223D7D71E67A53C93A7DA3B56E2BBD53FDCB1
   Account:         asb

2. Background
   While I don't have a computer science background, I'm the kind of
   person who wants to understand how the thing we rely on in our lives
   work. I'm not a carpenter but knowing how to build things has
   certainly been very helpful in my life. It's that mindset that brought
   me to Linux and free software. I'm also the type of person who looks
   for ways to give back to the communities that I'm a part of. This led
   to me becoming active in triaging bugs and other tasks in Ubuntu in
   2007. Eventually I became an Ubuntu Developer in 2009. My first upload
   to Debian was file-browser-applet, an applet for the old GNOME2 panel,
   in June of 2008. While that package is now gone (well, still in
   stable) as it was never ported to a GNOME-Shell extension, in the past
   four years I've gone on to (co-)maintain ~20 packages.

   I've been active in a few teams for awhile now, namely pkg-bazaar. One
   main goal that has accelerated my desire to become a DD is that the
   only active DD on the team has indicated he will be stepping back
   after the release of wheezy. So I hope to be able to not just upload
   the packages in the team that I already look out for closely (which I
   can already upload as a DM), but also be able to sponsor uploads for
   other non-DD team members.
