Of course. I can't imagine a better home in terms of emotional
and technical reasons. Technical it would be hard to find a host
which is mirrored all over the world.

Interesting. I never tried it but it might be a good start to do
so. I've just wondered why the homepage of www.debian.org ist just
presented in German until I've read the page source. Nice thing that
even if I don't know how it works.

Hmmm, my son was growing up nine and a half year without Debian-jr.
It might happen that he will be fine also some more weeks :).
Practically it would be good if it would happen before the potato
release. This event would cause much visits on the news section
and it would be good if we would be next to this entry.
