 <p>You should <em>only</em> advocate someone if you think that they are
 ready to be a developer. This means that you should have known them for
 some time and can judge their work. It is important that prospective
-developers have been working in the project for some time, by maintaining
-a package, helping users and sending patches. They should be familiar
-with Debian's special ways of doing things and have contributed some
-work to the project. Just ask yourself if you want to see them in Debian
-&ndash; if you think they should be a Debian developer then go ahead and 
-recommend them.
+developers have been working in the project for some time.  Some ways
+prospective developers might be contributing include:</p>
+<li>maintaining a package (or several),</li>
+<li>helping users,</li>
+<li>publicity work,</li>
+<li>organizing work for debconf,</li>
+<li>sending patches,</li>
+<li>contributing bug reports,</li>
+<li>... and much more!</li>
+<p>These ways of helping are not mutually exclusive, of course!  Many
+prospective developers will have done work in several areas of the
+project, and not everyone must be a packager.  Remember, <a

+publicly-visible parts of the project</a>.  Your personal knowledge of
+the applicant is also important here.
+<p>The prospective developer should be familiar with Debian's special
