I support Richard Laager <[hidden email]>'s request to become Debian
Richard and I have worked together on the gbonds package since March of
2007, the up-imapproxy package since December of 2016, and most recently
(and more intensively) on the ntpsec package since February of 2018.
For these packages, Richard has handled basically 100% of the packaging
and BTS/triage work, while I have acted as sponsor and we have conferred
on questions and approaches to maintaining software. I am confident in
Richard's capabilities, skills as a developer, and commitment to Debian
and Free Software.
I have collaborated with Richard Laager <[hidden email]> (key
D4EB7D94E78E4EE8ECE07F94F8796199C04586CE) for almost 13 years, and I
know Richard Laager can be trusted to be a full member of Debian, and
have unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights, right now.
Note that the text above is quite similar to my advocacy statement for
Richard's DM application last year . Nothing has changed in my
estimation of Richard's capabilities since that time. I am glad to see
this application move forward. Please feel free to reach out to me if I
can help further with the process.
