I fully support Chris in joining the ranks of Ubuntu developers, based
on hi (copious) Debian experience, and the time he has been involved in
the Ubuntu community one way or another. While he hasn't been involved
for a long time with MOTU, he has still done a lot of work (as
expected), and I believe that we can trust him to work as a productive &
willing member of the Ubuntu community.
