Xavier Grave is a new Debian Maintainer

I make this announcement with great pride.  After a year or so of
mentoring, my young and talented Padawan, Xavier Grave, has been accepted
as a Debian Maintainer[1,2,3].  Xavier is the maintainer of three new
packages in Debian:

liblog4ada -- An Ada library for flexible logging
libxmlezout -- Easy-to-use library for emitting XML from Ada programs
polyorb(*) -- Multiple-personality middleware for Ada
(*) together with Reto Buerki and myself

In addition, he will adopt the following existing package:

music123 -- A command-line shell for sound-file players

and he occasionally helps maintain:

gnat-gps -- The GNAT Programming System - advanced IDE for C and Ada

Now that he is a Debian Maintainer, he has the right to upload new versions
of his packages to the Debian archive without supervision from a sponsor. 
In time, I do hope he will grow into a full Debian Developer with voting
rights, the right to upload any package and to sponsor packages for his own
Padawans :)
