For, at 2019-01-29:
I support Felix Yan <>'s request to become Debian Maintainer.
I have been working with Felix Yan for more than 2 years on Deepin-related packages both
in Debian and outside of Debian. His work, though not directly reflected in Debian
archive, helped to make Deepin packages in Debian in good shape. He is reasonably
familiar with Deb-based toolchain and has good experience in maintaining packages in
various Linux distributions. His presence the in Debian Project will surely help to
strengthen the connection and cooperation between Debian and downstream derivatives.

I believe Felix Yan <>
(key B5971F2C5C10A9A08C60030F786C63F330D7CB92) can be trusted to have upload rights
for their own packages, right now.
