RE : Re: Linux Magazin Germany, affecting Debian's image?!

Who "we"? Is this officially backed by the Debian Project?

The advertisment doesn't say that. It says: "Sarge, with the latest bla-bla:
X.org, FF1.5, etc".

This is a major communication problem then. People will imagine that _this_
is Sarge. And this is not Sarge!

Couldn't at least be labeled "Sarge CeBIT 2006 Edition"? Some other distros
(Knoppix, for one, I guess) take proper care to not mismatch

I'm terribly sorry to say, but I'm disappointed by the unprofessional
approach. Or, take it the other way around: if unofficial backports can be
seen as official, how comes we can't download the "updated CeBIT 2006
edition" DVD?

This is both frustrating and confusing for the image of the Debian.

This is rather a very, very bad day for me. I believed in the seriousness of
the Debian Project, and now I see there is a certain lack of coherence in all
