Thierry is part of the Ubuntu server team. When you yahoo
for some weird problem with your production machine or for
some missbehaviour in a chroot or ... just anything ... you are
likely to find an answer by him in some forum that helps. Amazing.
That much to his T&S.

I know Thierry from a recent larger Java-based packaging efforts
that depended on 10+ of his Java packages in Ubuntu. So I helped
sponsoring/co-maintaining that series of his packages to adopt them
for Debian and we had a couple of emails exchanged over that process
and afterwards. Concerning the packages we did a few updates
here or there, but they were all nice. And Thierry was very constructive
and stimulating during our repackaging process all the time. It felt
great to have him around. I don't recall if we had declared him to
be a co-maintainer of the packages we had adopted from him
with his Ubuntu hat on, a few times possibly, but in retrospect
and particularly now with his DM status ante portas we should
always have done so. Well, there will be future versions of those

Gosh, I kept begging this guy to apply for the DM status for a
couple of months :)  Thierry, I am certain your acceptance will
be one of the quickest in the DM history and I hope you will also
want to proceed towards a DD status.
