I thought it stalled.  There were no content in many chapters.
I ended up creating a new document "Debian Reference" which also has 
many CLI things.


or its tuorial section:

Can we consider this being official orphaning of this source by you?

This manual has already been labeled "obsoleted".

If you agree, I would like DDP to remove this tree to avoid similar 

FYI: I gave credit to these documents as:

  Some parts of "Tutorial" section were derived from

     * "Debian Tutorial" by Havoc Pennington, Oliver Elphick, Ole Tetlie,
       James Treacy, Craig Sawyer, and Ivan E. Moore II. (This document was
       derived from "Linux User's Guide" by Larry Greenfield.)
     * "Debian GNU/Linux: Guide to Installation and Usage" by John Goerzen
       and Ossama Othman.

It was very good starting point for me.  I hope "Debian Reference"
covers what you aimed.  Thank you creating good starting point.
