Yes.  Travelling and speaking is one of the key tasks of the DPL (as I
see it), and something I explicitly considered before agreeing to
nominate.  My employer also employs other Debian Developers, so is
aware of (and understands the implications of) my running for DPL.

My current role in Debian is simply as a maintainer of some fairly
average packages.  I do not see my maintainership of those packages
suffering at all from my being elected DPL.

By being DPL, Debian would gain from my public speaking experience and
management abilities.  I expect my relative independence will also
prove valuable while Debian works through the various problems raised
during this election.
