The way I read the question, the OP may be to assuming that Debian is
a commercial organization with a support staff. This is not the case.
Debian is a volunteer effort and commercial-grade support is not
available from the Debian organization directly.

Granted, in practice Debian is a rather well-supported Linux
distribution, but this is the result of generous contributions by
volunteer support engineers (if you can call them that).

Perhaps this should be added to the Debian FAQ somewhere?

See also <http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-basic_defs.en.html> and
However, the former is not very specific at all on this issue, and the
latter is too specific -- the support discussion applies to Progeny,
not Debian.
