According to my UDD query [1], there are only 15 uploads with his name
in Changed-By, touching only 4 packages in total (and most of them are
of the single package "powerline").

Whilst I can see how contributing in the DebConf orga is a huge
contribution to our community, I question your technical abilities.  Of
the two advocacies, one said nothing about technical aspects, and the
other is a generic "he is a DM => he has the needed background";
besides, neither of them sponsored his uploads.

Having upload rights to the Debian archives means you will then be able
to upload everything, and whilst I don't expect everybody to be able to
understand everything, I do expect all DDs to have enough knowledge and
abilities to be able to "find their way" in most packages, ability that
I do not believe you have publicly proved.

I'm more than happy to be proved wrong.
