I support Jamie Strandboge <>'s (key
4C20C06B5D8BDE688854D28A51DBDC58CC559573) request to become Debian
Maintainer. I have worked with Jamie Strandboge on countless Debian and
Ubuntu packages (doing security updates, etc) since roughly 2007 (and
specifically on ufw since 2009). He's an excellent maintainer and he's
got a strong attention to detail. I absolutely trust him to have upload
rights for his own packages. Frankly, I'd trust him with upload rights
for the entire archive, but that's a different application process. ;)
