This is long overdue: I heartily endorse Jens' application to become a Debian
Maintainer. He has prepared the last few releases of the various Wine
packages on his own, and has taken care of the backports for longer still.
(I just rubber-stamp all this by sponsoring the uploads, the packaging never
needs re-touching.) He also involves upstream where necessary, better than I
ever have with Wine. None of this is easy packaging work, it takes a lot of
time and effort (and tests). Jens also actively responds to bug reports.

The Wine project is certainly better off with Jens involved!

That's also an indication of how involved Jens is with the Debian community.

So do I!

Sorry for the delay,
