I have sponsored a few packages from Dan over the year and the ones I have seen were high quality.
Dan has the desire to do things right and he always accept constructive comments/feedbacks with a positive attitude.

He understands the principles of debian packaging and the SRU process and he is not afraid to ask questions when needed.
As a SRU uploader, it is always a pleasure to sponsor a patch from Dan, and I think he would be a great addition to the SRU uploader launchpad team.

=== Specific Experiences of working together ===

Dan is a colleague and I work with him for the past 2 years now. Dan's role is to drive bugs into resolution by troubleshooting, fixing bugs, providing guidance & workarounds, for different areas of expertise which may cover areas such as: kernel, drivers, virtualization, network, cloud, storage setups, ... and physical/virtual environment orchestration.

=== Areas of Improvement ===

== Martin Pitt ==

I only sponsored one SRU ([[https://launchpad.net/bugs/1609898|isc-dhcp]]) for Dan, which was relatively simple: backporting a patch from Debian to a native package (so no patch system involved). He handled all the SRU description, documentation, changelog, policy, following up to questions, etc. correctly, and all went well with this SRU.

However, this is a sample size of one, so I abstain from a recommendation and just add it as a data point.

I sponsored two packages for Dan. I found an issue with them (no bug closure), but Dan was responsive on IRC to amending the uploads (I ended up doing it as part of the sponsorship). In my non-sponsorship interaction with Dan, he has always been prompt and willing to adjust to recommendations.

=== Specific Experiences of working together ===
While not strictly relevant to this membership, I also have worked with Dan in the past at a prior company and had an excellent working relationship with him.

Similar to Martin, my sample size is small, so I think I need to abstain from a recommendation.

Who I am

I started with UNIX is 1993, using Solaris, and then moved to Linux in 1997 using Slackware, Red Hat, and now Ubuntu. I began Linux kernel development in 2001, in the USB subsystem, and have contributed since then in various kernel subsystems including memory management, networking, and crypto.

My Ubuntu story

I joined Canonical in 2015 as part of the Support and Technical Services Engineering team, and have been working on problems that reach into many different parts of Ubuntu; the kernel, networking, multipath, udev, and more. I enjoy digging deep into technical details and solving problems.

Areas of work

Most of my work is done in the kernel, both upstream and in Ubuntu's branches. However, I also make fixes to various packages as I, or Canonical customers or public Ubuntu users, find bugs in them that I am in a position to fix.

Things I could do better

Time management is difficult for everyone, as we never have enough time to complete everything we want to do. I hope to manage my time better, balancing work and family while also continuing to contribute upstream.

Plans for the future

Keep improving Ubuntu and Linux in general!

What I like least in Ubuntu

Documentation is sometimes hard to come by, or out of date.
