I believe that James Hunt has the technical skills needed to maintain
Debian packages. I support his application to become a Debian
maintainer, because he has excellent portable C programming skills and
good knowledge of Linux, *BSD and other Unix systems. He has a good
grasp of sh, python, Make and sound understanding of the Debian Policy.
His packaging experience has mostly been with C/automake applications,
but he is starting to diverge into other packaging techniques (e.g.
python scripts/modules, DEP-8 autopkgtests, stable abi libraries, etc).
I have been sponsoring his uploads of procenv / utfout into Debian, and
also reviewing his packaging changes for upstart. I recommend to grand
James Hunt the status of Debian Maintainer. I hope eventually James will
be working towards applying for Debian Developer with uploading rights
