I'll also join to Holger's answer: I cannot speak for Tom technically,
but I do know he is long-term interested and committed to Debian, have
seen him several times at DebConf. I know he has mentored Debian
projects for the GSoC, given some interesting Java-related talks (and
having something "interesting" and "Java-related" at the same time is
almost a NOOP for me!)

So, Tom, I'm not signing this mail (as it should not be seen as a
formal endorsement, as I don't know your job technically). But I hope
your passage as a DM is short, and you soon become a DD :)
