I can very much echo all of this very much, I've also enjoyed working with
Daniel in said company (hi profitbricks, many thanks for sponsoring
jenkins.debian.net and tests.reproducible-builds.org for all these years!)
and will just repeat once more that Daniel is a fantastic friendly fellow
and a perfect example of someone skipping the DM step, because of proven
competence and existing long term involvement, thus I really look forward
to him becoming a DD RSN!

I'm also much looking forward to meet again 'for real' one day, hopefully also
somewhat soon..!
