given that Jeroume was and is very much involved in organizing this DebConf
and was involved in the previous too, I actually don't think this surprising
nor little at all. Been there, done that, my NM process took 2 years also
because of DebConf… and iirc I was involved in an similar amount of packages
when I joined.

While I haven't sponsored his uploads I had several technical conversations
with him (not just now, but also last year at LibrePlanet and when visiting
Montreal afterwards) and combined with his "philosophical values" I'm also
very much convinced that he has the technical skills and knowledge to be
ready to start the DD process right now.

;tl;dr: I support Jerome Charaoui <jer...@riseup.net>'s request to become 
        Debian Developer, uploading, right now, after he had at least a
        week rest 8-)

Maybe not publically on the net… ;-p IOW: to me has proven it IRL.

I hope you'll be happier now ;)
