In the introduction of our Constitution:
  The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made
  common cause to create a free operating system[*].
I first did not notice the footnote
  [*] ... and find a job in the IT industry.
My paid job is neither related to Debian nor to my activities within
Debian, so I must admit that I have been a fool to give time to
Debian without return, and I will now look for some medical help to
diagnose and cure this distortion of reality perception.
