	I'm not comfortable with people thinking the
securing-debian-howto (now manual) is "word of law".  I'm the
writer of the Securing-debian-howto and I now it's not
complete, so, please don't assume it's a mandatory document
(such as policy is). After all is a document I've written, and
it has not been aproved by, for example, the Debian Security
Team or any other "official" team.
