I support Karen M Sandler <debian@punkrocklawyer.com>'s request to become
Debian Developer, non-uploading.
I have worked with Karen on a number of items during my term as DPL,
especially on the Copyright Assignment Project, and various GPL incompatable
kernel modules (namely, ZFS and nvidia). This was both as an external party,
but also cruicially with her acting in the interests of Debian.

I have no hesitation in recommending her to be a full member of Debian.

Karen (together with Bradley Kuhn and other people from Conservancy) has
helped a project I'm part of, Kallithea, quite a lot, helping to liberate
it from a hostile upstream's licensing decisions.  Having met her later at
FOSDEM and DebConf and attended her talks and talked to her, I'm confident
she shares the values of Debian, she's a devoted free software advocate,
and I believe she can be trusted to be a full member of Debian.

I hereby support the application of Karen Sandler,
<debian@punkrocklawyer.com>, to become Debian Developer, non-uploading.

2010 and I know that she can be trusted to be a Debian Developer, uploading,
right now.
