For, at 2019-07-21:

I support Clément Hermann <>'s request to become Debian
Developer, uploading.

Nodens is a member of the Debian Perl Team since 2015, and that's also the
year when I first met him (at DebConf in Heidelberg) and started to work
together with him. He has worked on a couple of individual packages since
then, and was active in team activities like organizing BoFs at DebConfs and
writing reports from Sprints.

Recently, i.e. at the Sprint last week, he spent lots of time on
cross-package QA work, analyzing an issue affecting many packages, drafting
a future team policy for the topic, and starting to fix affecting packages.

Nodens is in my experience a team player, knows when to ask, and is a fast
learner, e.g. of all the tools we have in the Perl Team and which can be a
quite overwhelming :)

Outside the Perl Team, Nodens was e.g. also active in the Alioth → Salsa
migration. which also shows his broad interest in and dedication to Debian.

I don't know his work in the Golang team but I hope someone from there can
tell their experience as well.

I have personally worked with Clément Hermann <> (key
06639AFAA76D6B480169708830E674676859C8AD), and I know he can be trusted to
be a full member of Debian, and have unsupervised, unrestricted upload
rights, right now.
