Advocacy for Nathan Harrison Handler
I advocate Nathan Harrison Handler to become uploading DD.
I've worked with Nathan for a few years now, both in Ubuntu and Debian.
I've sponsored his work with udj-desktop-client, and found it to be of the quality expected of any DD. He's extremely responsive, and has an undying attention to detail. I believe he's fit for unrestricted upload rights to the archive.
Nathan is a great social fit, and I believe he will contribute in an extremely positive way to Debian's community.
Nathan is *not* a DM, so I feel that I need to justify this a bit:
While I like to see people go through the DM process (FWIW, I would give him DM on udj-desktop-client right now), I don't believe it'd be a good idea in Nathan's case.
Nathan currently (without DM or DD) maintaining over 80 packages with pkg-perl. While I can't advocate that work (I'm not a member of pkg-perl, nor do I feel right speaking on their behalf), I find it silly to force DM first.
I fully support Nathan's application to become an Uploading DD.
