I support Aurélien COUDERC <zecoucou@free.fr>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading. I have worked with Aurélien on the integration of theme-related contributions into the Debian Installer (which can be considered a maze for any newcomer), and I've followed his more general efforts on the desktop-base package by keeping an eye on the debian-desktop@ mailing list.

Aurélien's soft skills are more than welcome and also an inspiration to me. Examples include his coordination of the desktop-base migration to git, and cross-desktop-environment theme integration efforts.

I wasn't having any doubts, but the suggested keysigning-over-meal a few months ago put the final touch to my being convinced of Aurélien's strong feelings and commitment to the Debian project.

I support Aurélien COUDERC <zecoucou@free.fr>'s request to become Debian
Developer, uploading.

I have worked with Aurélien COUDERC in the Debian desktop team, preparing the
desktop themes for multiple releases. His early contacts started in 2010 but
his real involvement started for the Jessie release in 2015. Since then, he
handled the theming selection process and packaging of the result in the
desktop-base package for multiple releases.

He is quite responsive, kind with other people interacting with the team and
his work on the desktop-base package is really helpful and the result is quite
visible on every Debian desktop.

I have personally worked with Aurélien COUDERC <zecoucou@free.fr> (key
216FFF40001A0E070E283B1F71A7E533F291A324) and I know Aurélien COUDERC can be
trusted to be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted
upload rights, right now.

I advocate Aurélien COUDERC <zecoucou@free.fr>, OpenPGP Fingerprint <216F FF40
001A 0E07 0E28 3B1F 71A7 E533 F291 A324> to become Debian Developer, uploading.

While I haven't done any technical work with Aurélien, apart from
over-the-shouldering his conversion of the desktop-base package repository to
git while we were representing Debian at RMLL 2017, and so will not be able to
attest to his proficiency at package maintenance, I can attest of his dedication
to our project, from an outreach perspective.

For a few years now, he has done a lot of outreach work for the project, most
notably co-organizing the last three meetups in Paris, and volunteering his time
to represent Debian on booths at events, e.g. at RMLL ("Rencontres Mondiales du
Logiciel Libre") in Saint-Étienne in 2017. I trust Aurélien is in full agreement
with the philosophy and technical excellence of our project, and would be even
more of an asset to Debian as a full member of the project.
