Although my workload means that I don't contribute much, I would
second this, he has shown maturity and care in his work to date as
well as technical competence. (Of course only if he wants to,
definitely no pressure here)

Yes we do, 1000 clones of eclipse in parallel might be nearly as fast

I would suggest that the project needs to examine how it might stop
relying on Enrico's infrastructure, even if its not immediate, one day
he might get sick of it's leaching off him and whilst it is I would
think it is harder to have others help him with these administrative
