I am applying to change my status in Debian to Debian Developer, uploading. I 
have been a Debian Maintainer and Contributor for a few years [1] and I have 
enjoyed that quite a bit. I have been maintaining the packages for 
WorldForge [2], a project I work on upstream as well. I currently maintain 
ten of those packages in Debian including one for which I was able to resolve 
a licensing issue with upstream to allow packaging. I'd like to eventually 
help with other things as well, potentially in the scientific or engineering 

About me: I've been administering from one to a dozen GNU/Linux systems since 
Slackware back in late 1994. I switched over to Debian sometime in 1995. 
I watched from the sidelines for quite a while but I've been trying to give 
back a bit more over the past few years. I'd like to continue to do more. My 
programming skills aren't great but they've been improving as I've done more 
packaging work. I also have a good bit of experience with the technical side 
of website design (HTML/CSS/PHP/SQL/JavaScript) and with programming 
engineering models (MATLAB/GNU Octave/et al.).

Thank you for your consideration!
