thank you, I should properly reread what I write (even or especially if
already tired) the English was horrible.

it is working a bit like domain names in the internet. individually very
unfair etc. (we had to settle for latex-project not latex though it could have
been worse:-) but that doesn't make the internet unfree. it is on the contrary
helpful inthe long run, because you find the debian project at debian.org and
not my private version of it mounted on my local machine

good night
