Hi Enrico,

I added William as a recipient - Billy, I told you so! ;-) I told you
I would not be a good advocate for you, as we have stone-cold and
iron-cast people sitting at the frontdesk. Not only that, they
masquerade for a nice, warm, lovable Italian guy... Nobody is safe

Enrico, on a more serious note: I agree with you. I know (and stand by
what I wrote) William will make a good addition to Debian, and I would
have liked him to take this step several years ago already. However, I
also agree I cannot judge his technical work - I did a bit more than
just looking at the pages, but of course, that's not as much as saying
"I have worked closely with him".
