So what? The same can be said (for example) for hiring only females for 
certain jobs ("nicer telephone voice", "more appealing to (male) customers", 
whatever crap).

That's also (somewhat) standard practice in Germany, while being illegal.

I support Jurjs proposal of adding a "Please no discriminatory job offers" or 
such to http://lists.debian.org/debian-jobs/

And I also suggest not to freak out about every bit of discrimination, esp. as 
this project is foremost about creating a free universal operating system...
