Dear Debian Front Desk,

I support Richard Laager <>'s
(key D4EB7D94E78E4EE8ECE07F94F8796199C04586CE) request to become a
Debian Maintainer.

Richard and I have worked together on the gbonds package since March
of 2007, the up-imapproxy package since December of 2016, and most
recently (and more intensively) on the ntpsec package since February
of 2018.  For these packages, Richard has handled basically 100% of the
packaging and BTS/triage work, while I have acted as sponsor and we have
conferred on questions and approaches to maintaining software.

I am confident in Richard's capabilities, skills as a developer, and
commitment to Debian and Free Software.  I trust Richard to have upload
rights to the Debian archive and am delighted to see this application
move forward.
