Statement Uploaded by Upload date Actions
For on 25 February 2018 :
I support Tim Lunn <>'s request to become Debian Maintainer.

I first started working with Tim in 2012 on packaging for the Ubuntu GNOME
project. Without Tim, Ubuntu GNOME would not have survived.

Tim and I have been interested for a while in reducing the diff and
duplication of work between Debian and Ubuntu with GNOME packages. Tim
getting upload rights to these packages will help with this goal and will
help make Debian GNOME better for our users.

I have personally worked with Tim Lunn <>
(key 0E0880479A6F1063372395275B39C0A1153ACABA) for several years, and I
know Tim Lunn can be trusted to have upload rights for their own packages,
right now.
