I get your point, but Debian is putting *commercial business* their
way, and attaching to their business a notional imprint of Debian
approval. If they cannot face acknowledging that people may come to them
because of this, then perhaps they should be buying advertising space

Anyway, and less commercially, I refer you to the other half of my

I hand the Debian consultants list to one of my colleagues, with a note:
"In the event of my untimely blah blah, try one of these guys to help
with the computer system".

They are forced to invoke this procedure for whatever reason.

The first few people whose web site they check do not appear to support

At what point do they decide the list is worthless?
