Nicholas D Steeves: Advocate

Hash: SHA256

I support Nicholas D Steeves <nsteeves@gmail.com>'s request to
become Debian Maintainer.
I have worked with Nicholas D Steeves for some months and I'm
pretty sure about his skills in packaging and devotion to Debian project.

There is unfortunately an issue:
the Debian infrastructure is not actually allowing a DD to grant DM
permissions for a package only in a particular suite (e.g. he maintains
his packages only in backports suite, and he is not yet, or won't be
added as uploader in unstable/Stretch).
So, while I like his work, he keeps the packages up-to-date,
he follows upstream development, and keeps his packages bug free
(in backports/unstable), I won't probably give him dm rights until
he gets added in the uploaders list.
(this is nothing against his good faith, but something against
honest mistakes in wrong suite uploads).

So, please consider letting him become a DM, in the meanwhile
 probably current uploaders will add him to their packages.

thanks for your work so far!
