It might be a good idea to add some about his "project history", too.
Could someone have a look at his plattform, where mentions that and add
it to the draft bellow? Please also add who condiated, too, and a small
"Thanks to Sam, our present DPL, who didn't liked to run due to time
constraints" or something like that.
BTW: As soon as http://www.debian.org/vote/2008/vote_001 is updated, I
would like to send out something do the debian-news list, too.
