Ok, so something like:

Dec 11  Infomagic announces mistakenly shipping Debian as 1.0, 1995

although that might be subtle to anyone who doesn't already know the
story, I guess.  On the other hand, anything we put in that little of
a space will probably be subtle to anyone who doesn't already know
the story.

In any case, the original entry sounds spiteful because "botching" is
usually used in the case where you want to assign blame, especially
through malice or incompetence (yes, Infomagic might be blameworthy,
but it *has* been 8 years, hence the "let bygones be bygones" response).
