Hi,

I would hereby like to declare my intention to change my status
from Debian Maintainer to Debian developer (uploading).

I am involved in Debian packaging since 2008. I've declared my
intent to become Debian maintainer in April of the following
year [1] and was approved in May [2]. Since then, I've adopted
some packages, introduced new ones [3] and joined packaging
teams. I was (with help from others) also successful in
integrating an Debian kernel module package in the official
Linux kernel and thus in the standard Debian kernel.

While the status of Debian Maintainer was enough for most of the
tasks, I hit the limits of the privileges from time to time and
had to search for sponsors. The people I found during the time
were nice and forthcoming. But I got told a couple of times to
consider switching my status to Debian Developer (uploading).

I would like to do this now. My plan is to continue maintaining
packages and I intent also to become more involved in the
communitywlan-team in the near future.

Kind regards,
	Sven
