I can only confirm what Axel wrote.

Actually Alex is member of pkg-perl since at least 2008, if my
grep-fu is correct :)
And I already met him quite some years ago (2010? 2011?) at FOSDEM.

In the last 1.5 years, besides his activities as a Perl hacker and
organizer, he also became more active again in Debian and pkg-perl,
and more visible on IRC :), organising, communicating, documenting,
and packaging stuff. We also met a few times in various places which
was always a pleasure.

I have worked with Alex on the packages where he's in Uploaders and
also some others where he has made contributions, and I can confirm
that he has the techical skills to upload selected packages on his
own. - And I'm happy to see that he's getting even more active in
Debian and might end up as a DD in the not-so-distant future :)
