I hereby support Alexandre Mestiashvili <email@example.com>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading. He is a long-time contributor to Debian Med, of which I have been a member of for more than 5 years as well. In Debian Med, Alexandre has been maintaining tools that are widespread and important in the bioinformatics community, like, for example, bowtie2, tophat and cufflinks. I have touched some of his packages while doing regular update work and I can confirm they always were in a good state. I was also happy to see Alexandre move beyond the core focus of Debian Med as he has now also started to care about packages in a broader scope, such as hdparm and various Python and Perl packages. Alexandre and I have personally met at the Debian Med sprint in Kiel, Germany in 2013, and I remember both personal and technical discussions as pleasant. - From what I can see from his contributions and my personal impression, he can be trusted to have full, unsupervised, unrestricted upload to the archive right now.Signed with key 0EED 77DC 41D7 60FD E440 35FF 5556 A34E 04A3 610B
Alex has contributed to Debian Med for the past ... six or seven years it must be already. Amazing. Initially suggested by a common friend to join, he has always been reliably updating the packages he maintains and also introduced a couple of new ones that are of importance for his professional routine. And he has already outgrown the medical domain for Debian, as I recall sponsoring (always seemlessly straight forward) non-scientific packages for him as well. We have met several times at the Debian Med Sprints. Always very pleasant and constructive. I am convinced that Alex' DD status will be beneficial for the well-being of Debian Med (which is getting so diverse in its workflows that we need many strongholds for various fields in computational biology) and for Debian at large for Alex as person and as a technical mind. Please let him in. SteffenSigned with key 84C1 977A 89E7 EFED 3E5C A62E 2FD8 BEDA C020 EED1
