Last call for feedback about GNU as a Debian upstream: the talk is on
Friday. I've already received a good deal of feedback (about 15 mails)
and I'm in the process of summarizing what I've got. Given feedback is
never enough :), you still have a few hours to let me know more. Of
course I'll report about the talk once it's done.

As I haven't yet done that with individual maintainers, I'd like to
hereby thank everyone who have followed-up providing some feedback:
