I don't find a way to do this via nm.d.o, so I'll pile on here. I'm pleased to
see Dmitry applying. I've worked with him on improving the python-qt4
packaging and getting pyqt5 into the archive. He's been technically sharp,
pleasant to work with, and willing to take on discussions with upstream when
needed. I'm confident he'll be an asset to the project.
