Robert has worked in the desktop team for half a year now, and consistently shown commitment to keeping the GNOME desktop up to date. He picked up the necessary packaging knowledge fast and learned about our tools and workflows.
I sponsored some 30 packages for him so far, and the recent ones were without problems except for the rather complex gnome-games split. He has learned to use lintian since then, and I trust him to ask for review for similarly complex cases.
I think he really earned the Ubuntu member badge now, and I also welcome him to join the MOTU ranks as a stepstone towards getting ubuntu-desktop upload privileges.
