Hello Stephan,

I am happy to hear that Ralf has knowledge and motivation and would like
to become active inside Debian, and I thank him for that.

Please note that advocacy messages should be written based on your
experience working with a person *inside* Debian. Please see:

There are plenty of ways of getting involved in Debian: for example you
can start with sponsoring his volsort uploads; or there is
mentors.debian.net; one can be added to Alioth projects and become
involved in various groups inside Debian; you can advocate him as a
Debian Maintainer (see http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMaintainer) after
you trust that some of his uploads don't need extra review.

Again, please see: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2010/05/msg00003.html
and http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2009/11/msg00005.html
("Advocation in the NM process") for details and rationales.
