for details about advocating someone to be a Debian Maintainer. You should be familiar with their
existing work within Debian and believe it to be of a sufficient standard that they can be
trusted with upload rights to the packages they maintain.
Please be verbose if you can. You may want to write the advocacy in a
proper text editor and paste it in the form when you are happy with it.

I first came across Filip Strömbäck's (email@example.com) work two years ago, at the
online version of the SIGCSE (Computer Science Education Special Interest Group)
Posters session. He was showing a tool he wrote and released as free software I
found immensely useful for my teaching, progvis. I later understod this was just
an examplke program of a much larger, much more ambitious project called Storm
I encouraged Filip to help me package this tool for Debian. Not only he did
this, but he took the lead! He did most of the packaging with very little
hand-holding from me, sensibly split a complex project into several binary
packages with clearly defined roles and responsabilities, took care of weird
licensing interactions (including creating an upstream branch where progvis is
conditionally built without support for given graphics primitives as "skia" is
not available in Debian)... He even ported the x86_64 assembly part of the Storm
compiler to also support ARM64 at my request!
I know Filip will be a great Debian Maintainer, and I can only hope that in some
time he proceeds to be also interested in becoming a full DD. Please, grant him
upload right for his own packages, right now!
