True, my comment was mainly from the point of view of the census.
Having them doesn't break other use cases though.

Just tried that and it doesn't seem to work in my case, I still get

Published here:


Minimal docs in doc/README, feel free to ask any questions on this list.

Contributions welcome. Especially for making make -jX work with the

BTW, how about a dex.debian.net domain?
