For, at 2019-01-17:

After looking at Paulo Henrique de Lima Santana
<>'s contributions and after exchanging some emails
to get to know them a bit better, I agree with the advocate(s) that Paulo
Henrique de Lima Santana <> can and should indeed
be a Debian Developer, uploading right now.

Paulo feels very safe in the P&P aspects of Debian. During the TS part,
we found several areas for him to improve. Paulo did well when getting
back to my questions and when diving into deeper discussions. With fields
that are new to Paulo, he proved well in being an open and curious

I reviewed quite a set of packages that Paulo prepared for upload and we
successfully completed several uploads to Debian unstable, some of them
also successfully made it through the NEW queue. One of Paulo's most
outstanding characteristic traits is that he is open to improving his
technical skills regarding Debian packaging and upstream interactions and
he is not afraid of asking for advice. He takes ideas of others into
consideration when proceeding with difficult tasks. Topics that he felt
insecure about during his NM process, will be filled with experience once
having been a DD for some time.

Paulo esp. showed very good communication skills when getting in touch
with other Debian teams, upstream maintainers, etc. In general, Paulo has
very good communication skills and appears friendly, polite and
to-the-point in written communication.

Last but not least, Paulo is involved in preparing next DebConf19 and
also involved in local Brazilian FLOSS activities. Paulo has a strong
stand for FLOSS and Debian. FLOSS permeates his whole being.

I look very much forward to having him as a co-developer in Debian
(hopefully very soon).
