.com and .net (fwd)

To Debian developers: I forwarded this FYI. Who knows, it may be useful some
day that debian.net and debian.com are available to us.

hi,.. im like not even worthy to talk to you guys but i think your
project is absolutely incredible. the non-profit nature of your project
is scary in the least. you guys are so great, i dont konw what i would
do if you couldnt afford to keep doing such work. i was checkin out
whois on internic the other day (cause i own a web server/shell server
company) running debian soon (like in 2 weeks) i might add. i noticed
debian.com and .net werent taken. i was scared that it might be
exploited so i got them. i want to let you know that if you ever want to
use them,.. ill let ya. i want to help your project. is there anything i
can do? i would like to be involved. maybe my company could be on a os
user committe or something to help you develope better advances and the
such. whatever. have a great day. please reply to tensai@mailcity.com
thanks kelly :o)

To Kelly:
  We happen to agree that Debian is pretty good. Just wait though - it's
going to get much better over the next few months.

You ask what you can do to help. Here are a number of things you can do:
  Donate some money to Debian. It doesn't have to be a lot, but we do have
     expenses. If your business is based on Debian, you should be able to
     afford a fraction of what you pay the other guys for their software.
     Plus, since maintenance will be easier your profit will be higher.
  Subscribe to debian-user and help answer questions.
  Take over maintainence of a package or two (or three or four :)
  Subscribe to debian-devel and hang out for a while. You know what your
     strengths are and you may see a need that you can help with.

- Sue
