I am very excited about Roland to join us more formally, too. His
professional ties with High-Performance-Computing will be good for us.
We have met with our Debian Med hats on, but I hope (and expect) Roland
to find many more links to the many other Debian-folks with large
computational demands. He creates his own suite of .deb packages for
about a decade and the DM status is a major requirement to have
that effort shifting towards our distribution. Please let him in.
We have met now twice in person, always a very pleasant experience, and
I hope for an opportunity to meet again at DebConf - then as a DM.
