Can you please include "Debian Edu" and "Skolelinux" in that list?! (Yes, 
Debian-Edu is the old and now depracted spelling variant, which is still used 
frequently. We have now settled on "Debian Edu" :)

I'm refraining from filing another bug report just now, but if you want, I'm 
happy to open one.

Thanks for your great work on lintian!
