Statement Uploaded by Upload date Actions
I support Jeremy Bicha <>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading.
I have worked with Jeremy Bicha for quite some time, even if I sponsored just a few packages for him (in Debian).

His work is excellent, he really cares about keeping is packages in a good shape, he cares about transitions and he is quick in reacting when problems are found.

Debian will benefit a lot from his work.

I have personally worked with Jeremy Bicha <> (key 4D0BE12F0E4776D8AACE9696E66C775AEBFE6C7D) for X time,
and I know Jeremy Bicha can be trusted to be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights, right now.  

Thanks Jeremy for finally starting the process!

I have personally worked with Jeremy Bicha <> in the
pkg-gnome team where he has been an outstanding contributor for a
sufficiently long time and I know jbicha having full unsupervised
unrestricted upload access to the archive would benefit us in the
team and likely also Debian as a whole on an even wider scale
than before.
I'm aware Jeremy is also very active in Ubuntu and GNOME upstream.
I find it that Jeremy is very good at interacting with upstream as
well as avoiding/resolving conflict or disagreeing opinions, which
means he has atleast two skills that I think we should have more
people like in Debian.

For any AM tasked to question Jeremy I would say you can skip
any regular packaging related questions. If you want to give
him some challange you might want to focus on a more complicated
philosophical question or ask him specifically about Debian
infrastructure and procedures related to those (as he mainly
uploads to Ubuntu and AFAIK has only very limited usaged his
DM privilegies because of the pkg-gnome streamlined sponsorship

But to be frank, please consider just fast-forwarding jbicha through
the entire process because any potential knowledge-gap he might
have I'm more than sure we can discuss and handle those within
the pkg-gnome team which has many very experienced DDs that would
happily assist jbicha if needed.
