Debian is not a Yellow Pages provider, thanks god. I strongly oppose this. If you want to hack into that and make searches easier for DDs  go ahead, if you want to open this up to non-DDs then no way. Regards Javier  I actually find it quite useful to be able to search on a per-country basis to find fellow Debian developers but, usually, a mail to d-private is all it is needed for some beer & keysigning. Not that difficult. Although, understandable, a per-country search isn't useful for some big countries with many developers (US anyone?) being able to do more restrictive searches would be a good enhancement. Any free GIS anyone?
