I have personally worked with Leo Singer <1879E9CC> for 1.5 years within the Debian Astro Team. I could sponsor some of his packages (healpix-java, reproject, pytest-mpl), and then gave him DM right on those packages. He also has DM right on python-astropy and python-astropy-helpers, to maintain backports of these packages. All this worked very well, without any problems. I therefore support his application as DD to get full, unsupervised, unrestricted upload to the archive right now.Signed with key BAFC 6C85 F7CB 143F EEB6 FB15 7115 AFD0 7710 DCF7
Leo just asked if I would possibly want to support his transformation to a full developer status. And I can only say, his advocation is a privilege, and not so because of his fancy nasa.gov email address. Debian ad astra! Leo has worked without me for the internal repository in the LIGO consortium, then shortly with me for sponsoring some lower-level packages for Debian, and then without me again as a Debian Maintainer for a few years and with the Debian-Astro Blend of ours. There is little more we can possibly expect. Leo was also always friendly enough to suffer through all my bad jokes about astronomers having difficulties to get key signatures on their mountain tops. On the more serious side, some IT-savvy scientific disciplines like bioinformatics are pretty much crowded with Debian developers that you basically run into on any larger meeting. Not so in astronomy - yet. But astronomy turned out to be much more data intensive than bioinformatics and we as a community should stay close to them as these special demands will help our distribution and ourselves to develop. And our infrastructure on packaging, dependencies, reproducive builds and continuous integration also helps the scientists. Please let Leo in.Signed with key 84C1 977A 89E7 EFED 3E5C A62E 2FD8 BEDA C020 EED1
