notable Debian contributions in 2006

Distors are often viewed as mere packagers, but they tend to drive
upstream development in variety of ways. Here's just a few of Debian's
contributions to the world of FLOSS during 2006:

* creation of cdrkit, a fork of cdrtools, due to a change of licence
which happened to be DFSG-incompatible
* rebranding of Firefox to Iceweasel due to trademark issues
* rebranding of Seamonkey to Iceape due to trademark issues
* rebranding of Thunderbird to Icedove due to trademark issues

There must be so much more, in which case I hope you may add to this
list, and if there's enough contributions, maybe a wiki page could be
set up and advertised.

(me hopes this is the right list)
