Re: data on the consultants page
The site seems legit, but that doesn't make spamming legal. To be
spam, however, it must be automated. It looks like a site for 'open
source' programmers, and Debian clearly qualifies as an 'open source'
project (in fact the OSD was based on the DFSG), so it may have been
manually sent. I would just ignore it.
