Within the last year, I have moved from being an OSS consumer to a contributor, and there have been a few key people that have gone above and beyond providing me with information, guidance, and time. Martin is one of them. His wide breadth of knowledge and involvement in the Ubuntu ecosystem, Snapcraft, and podcasting communities has not only been invaluable to me but also to all of those involved. A clear leader, contributor, and advocate for all things Linux. He has been active in the Ubuntu proper, Ubuntu Mate, and numerous other projects, and his cross-project collaboration efforts have been tremendous. Martin would be an exceptional member of the Ubuntu Community Council. @SIG

I have known Martin for years personally through our local Linux User Group. We worked together on the initial build of Ubuntu MATE which he took over and has been the driving force behind. He's been a fantastic steward of the Ubuntu MATE project. I don't believe anyone else could have got the project to the state it's in without his leadership. I have also worked for the last 3 years on the Ubuntu Podcast. He dived into the podcast with both feet, sorting out infrastructure and automating our processes to streamline show production. Martin is a reliable, friendly, relentlessly active contributor to all the projects he cares about. He cares deeply about the community around his projects, and is always willing to help people. He would be a fine member of the Ubuntu Community Council. -- AlanPope

Martin is everything you want from a great Ubuntu Community member. He works tirelessly to promote Ubuntu at events, through podcasts, and wherever he gets the chance as well as driving technical initiatives like Ubuntu MATE and helping others bring their software to Linux and Ubuntu with Snaps. His enthusiasm is infectious and spending even a short amount of time talking to him it is clear he cares about community, technology, and how others can benefit from free software. For all of these reasons and more Martin would be a great member of the Community Council. -- JamieBennett

I've worked with Martin for a while on a huge range of Ubuntu topics. He takes an interest in the full distro and is very hands-on when it comes to finding, logging and fixing bugs. He's been a tremendous help to the desktop team both through his work in MATE, with upstream and directly on the main Ubuntu Desktop. He's a fantastic ambassador for all things Ubuntu and his work in the community sets the standard for collaborative and welcoming projects. His understanding of Ubuntu processes and the reason the processes exist is deep and wide and he is always happy to offer help to people wanting to get involved in the project that might otherwise be scared off by some of the perceived red tape. Martin would make an outstanding member of the Ubuntu Community Council. -- WillCooke
