I would hereby advocate the application of Ivo.

It has been 3 years since I met Ivo at the Samba yearly
conference. Over these years, I gradually discovered his good
knowledge of Debian overall, his skills wrt packaging and the way the
distribution works.

More recently, Ivo did another step by becoming mor einvolved in the
maintenance of samba. All discussions we had each time we met have
been very productive and he has very good advices about the package
maintenance. Even better, last weeks, he did great work in helping me
in my yearly bug triage on samba package bugs
(http://qa.debian.org/data/bts/graphs/s/samba.png says a lot even if
several bug closures were also my own work..:-))

Ivo is someone very careful in what he does and I would very easily
trust him in doing great job when maintaining a package in an area
where he has expertise (and he has very good expertise in samba).

I think Ivo would be a very important contributor to have in Debian
even if that would bring Belgium closer to France in my
soon-to-be-published ranking of "developers per country". Really,
becoming a Debian Maintainer should only be a small step before
entering the Real Game..:-)
