Cool :)

It is up to the people involved in the derivatives to join the census.
Debian will invite derivatives to join but not add them directly.

Assuming that you are involved in the Rescatux project, I would
encourage you to register an account on the wiki, login and enter
'Rescatux' (without quotes) in the form and press 'Add a new
derivative'. That will use the latest CensusTemplate page and put a
Rescatux page in the right place.

That sounds like a useful tool, have you considered adding it to Debian?

Microblog is meant for things like twitter/identica pages.

That would be the name, email address and IRC nick of the person from
Rescatux who is willing to create and maintain a census page and also
be a point of contact for Debian folks.

This is for a page like this:

In this context QA means quality assurance not questions & answers.

It would be great if you could fill this one in if you add a page to the wiki.

Great. If you have any other feedback on the guidelines or additional
tweaks that need to happen, we would love to hear about them.
