Debian leaders did not respond to requests for comment [...]

From http://www.linuxfund.org/

How much are you funding?
We are funding the first three projects for $500 per month for one year- this is $6000 per project.

Is there a reason for not commenting and not mentioning this?  Sounds
like good news!

It is and we should comment on it. As no one seems to be on it, here's a first attempt at a short press release:


The Debian Project was pleased to learn it is one of only three Free Software organizations that will receive $6000 from linuxfund.org.
[Insert details]

Said [Insert cabal member], "The money awarded by Linuxfund is made up of many small donations from the grassroots Linux community. We see their decision to choose us as a validation of the Debian Projects uncompromising focus on service to our users and the Free Software community. Donations like this help ensure we can continue that service for a long, long time."

[Insert information on Debian and donating to it.]
