Please note, we promote "The Debian Administrator's Handbook" on

I think we are missing Debisn systemd documents soch as slides
such as one by Lucas (FREE):

If this is packaged as debiasn package, we can put it to our web page.

Also for Desktop, joss's slides are nice (I do not know the license but

If martin f krafft's book is under free licence and packaged, we can
also putb it on our web pagess.  Also let's make announcent :-)

We need these as the part of official documentation.
