I have sponsored several of Kartik's uploads as well, regarding
xosview (for which I am the previous maintainer). Some months ago,
yes, Kartik needed quite a bit of hand-holding. As of now, however, I
do agree his packaging (on what I have seen - this means, on xosview)
_is_ of enough quality.

So... Well, I do hope this public flaming regarding the fdisk messup
is enough to fix the mistake (not minor by any means, but still a
mistake) he did. Of course, as sponsors we are meant to check the
uploaded packages do build and work correctly, and as a
sponsoree/trainee he should be very careful when playing with
overrides (in most cases, lintian/linda _do_ know best!)...

...But I do feel he should be given the DM privileges. And, of course,
Kartik, please keep your eyes open! ;-)
