I support Nikos Tsipinakis <>'s request to become Debian

I've sponsored newsbeuter and newsboat for almost 3 three years now.
I always enjoyed the cooperation with Nikos, his packages were consistently
of high quality, and when I found a minor niggle, he would quickly fix it.
He was always able to explain his packaging decisions to me when I had
questions, and he actively engages with both upstream and bug reporters.
Giving him upload rights will save both him and me some time :)

I have personally worked with Nikos Tsipinakis <> (key
6263CC84F74A6F3763F1DBDB597E6A39983230EC), and I know Nikos Tsipinakis can
be trusted to have upload rights for their own packages, right now.
