I support Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading.
I have worked with Unit 193 on many packages, even if they often ended up being
sponsored by somebody else.  I reviewed packages like inxi, alpine and several
xfce packages, both for Debian and Ubuntu.

It's a huge pleasure working with him, his communication style may be unusual at
first but after a while it feels incredibly relaxing, and manages to always keep
any kind of discussion very calm.  He tries very hard not to step on anybody's
toes - something that I consider both a "feature" (as it prevents conflicts) and
a "bug" (as he ends up with work that takes forever to be merged) of him.

Also, his very thorough is astonishing; he often came to me to review work without
giving me the chance to say anything bad about it :)
I also trust him not to break things: he won't upload something he is not
confident about, and he is not shy to ask for help if he doesn't understand something,
and I'm positive this part of him won't change even if he has more power in his hands.


I have personally worked with Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com>
(key 8DB3E586865D2B4A2B185A5C5001E1B09AA3744B) for at least 3 years, and I know
Unit 193 can be trusted to be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised,
unrestricted upload rights, right now.

I support Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com>'s request to become Debian
Developer, uploading.

I have worked intensively with Unit 193 on various projects inside Debian
(MATE, Edu related packages, Ayatana Indicators) for over a year now
(partly even longer) and I would like to be able to see him support
Debian with his expertise as a DD.

I have personally worked with Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com> (key
8DB3E586865D2B4A2B185A5C5001E1B09AA3744B) since 2015/2016, and I know
Unit 193 can be trusted to be a full member of Debian, and have
unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights, right now.

Unit193 cares a lot about Debian as template for Ubuntu and helps at
various replaces with reducing the delta between the two distros.

Unit193 already is a great contributor to the XFCE team in Debian.

I have not met Unit193 in person, yet, and he is special about keeping
his real identity private. We had some very interesting dicussions about
his way of addressing Debianic and other open work under his pseudonyms.

Also, my impression is that Unit193 will contribute to Debian with his
fine-tuned social skills. In fact, his way-of-being, choice of words,
etc. when working with him via IRC and/or mail feels genuine and it is
enjoyable working with him.

I support Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com>'s request to become Debian Developer, uploading.
I have worked with Unit 193 on lots of virtualbox packages, and lots of other things over the years (e.g. inxi, some irssi stuff
and something I don't recall right now)

I have personally worked with Unit 193 <unit193@ubuntu.com> (key 8DB3E586865D2B4A2B185A5C5001E1B09AA3744B) since 2014 or so,
and I know Unit 193 can be trusted to be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted upload rights, right now.

He cares about reducing the delta between Debian and Ubuntu, he cares a lot about copyrights and archive, as well
as having packages in good shape, understanding how the community works and helping other people.

Please give him a chance!
