I hope you understand Debian is a volunteer organisation, and that therefore
we don't enter into commercial deals, as such.

If you wish to help doing the serbo-croatian translation of www.debian.org,
then your help will, I'm sure, be gratefully accepted.  You should make your
offer of help in that case to debian-www@lists.debian.org.

Well, as you know, Debian can be downloaded for free from the internet.  If
your bandwidth is not sufficient for that, many vendors sell Debian CDs for
only a few dollars over the cost of postage --- alternatively, it is
possible that a debian developer with a CD burner will offer to post you the
disks for only the cost of postage.  That would be an individual offer,
though, I can't promise it (I'd do it myself, but I don't have a CD burner).

Well, we have a website; if you want to help with the translation of that,
as I said, I imagine your efforts will be appreciated.  I don't imagine the
Debian project is particularly interested in having a separate .yu site.

As for your consulting business --- well, good luck with it!  We all like to
see people able to make a business of of debian consulting, and many
developers do indeed make their money that way...

Anyone can be a reseller of Debian,  you don't need permission for that.
Instructions on the best way to build CD images will be found at
http://cdimage.debian.org/ --- feel free to build, sell, market, advertise
as you wish...

I hope that clarifies the situtation somewhat.
