I did actually - after your last such recommendation. Double thanks.

Cool. I'll check it out in a day or five :)

Sorry, I should have updated that line.

I have decided upon the term Custom Debian Distribution for all my own
references. (Note that most other references in [my personal +
debian-enterprise] web pages, the email Subject: and my sig, all refer
to Custom Debian Distribution. Definitely it's a nice term to use.)

I have spent a little time on those websites, as well as
http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-np/ (non profit) (always more to do
though). In fact, Debian Non Profit is a nice counterpoint to
debian-enterprise, yet I think that technical goals will be more closely
coincident than might at first be obvious :)

Gotta love free software community-based model.
