Just one clarification: you say "I have not directly worked Debian-wise
with William", and that phrase raises a FD alarm bell about this size:

However you say that you have reviewed his sponsored work in Debian. The
two statements are, as I see it, contradictory, unless it was just a
quick review.

Also considering how it went 6 months ago, I would feel more comfortable
if I saw another advocacy message from one of the people who actually
sponsor his uploads. 

I see many people are sponsoring his packages, so it should not be a big

I am not in fact Cc-ing them now because there are too many and I don't
want to end up spamming people :)  But if you could please ask whoever
of them you think is more appropriate to chime in, I'd really appreciate
it. Feel free to quote this message to them if you think it would help.
