I have not been able to figure out what Max is saying, but I
think a clearer way to state this particular point is:

Debian only distributes software.

If software is defined as executable code, then no. If software is
defined as executable code + related data used by it + documentation +
everything else, then yes. I think the latter is the definition Debian

Conceptually, the software we distribute can also be thought of as
something else, the particulars of which vary from package to package.


But it's all software.

And that is what Max can't grasp.
