sorry, but I didn't get your answer about reviewing (for sponsoring 
new/existing packages) really, and that's what my initial question was about. 
So I'd like to ask you again, what part of the process of reviewing packages 
with bzr you think is superiour compared to REVU or using debdiffs. Maybe you 
could give a sample what steps you are performing when reviewing a package 
via bzr highlighting what you think is particularly better for each one, so 
that I can understand your answer better ;).

Nonetheless, I believe I've read enough to come to a decision:
Seeing your answers to the technical questions leaves no doubts about your 
technical skills for me. Your answers regarding the telepathy team make me 
feel that the telepathy team should get better integrated into the MOTU 
landscape. I guess having another MOTU inside the tp. team is a good step 
forward, so +1 for your application from me.
