I admire this guy a lot:

  • his great passion for Debian (he speaks on behalf of it on a variety of events)
  • mature and thoughtfulness in a variety of debates regarding this or that decision within Debian
  • his ongoing push for collaboration between Debian and other distros
  • his positive outlook for Debian, at a time when many are worried about its loss of relevance
  • his passion for software freedom (we need people like this in an age where people tend to trade freedom for pragmatism)

To prove I'm not the only one, there a bunch more guys who were happy enough with his 2010 term as Debian Project Leader (DPL), that they re-elected him again. What's more interesting is that no one else stood for election. He also won the term the third time, so will reign over Debian in 2012.
