2. Background

   Mazen writes about himself:
   | My name is Mazen Neifer. I'm GNU/Linux user for 10 years. I started
   | using Debian distribution because it is really free software. As no
   | money consideration is taken in building the system, it could ensures
   | that its releases are really stable and could go in production machines.
   | Timing deadline and marketing considerations could not compromise the
   | release quality.
   | I'm also a Free Pascal user and developer for 12 years. Currently I'm
   | maintaining Debian packages for FPC[1] and Lazarus[2], helping Carlos
   | Laviola, Torsten Werner and other maintainers to keep up to date FPC and
   | Lazarus on Debian repository.
   | Giving a great importance to free software, I preferred to have non FPC
   | in Lenny rather than publishing a tainted code and thus requested to
   | remove FPC from Lenny due to copyright infringement[3] only few weeks
   | before it is released.
   | I also reported many bugs on other packages, helped debugging and
   | investigating the issues and even proposed patches to fix the issues.

Mazen is mainly active with Pascal packages in Debian. During his NM
process he showed that he's also knowledgeable of other areas, even if
his personal preference of how to spend his spare time is clearly in the
Free Pascal domain. His NM process started back in 2009 and Mazen has
been committed to the project during all that time, even though real
life of his AMs got in the way of completing the process earlier.

Kind regards
