Let's avoid spreading this myth.  The above is not true or, better, it's
not *necessarily* true. As I've reported about in the past, I'm working
with current maintainers of mentors.d.n and the lawyers we've access to,
to fix this. It's still work in progress, but it looks like that with
appropriate policies / terms of use documents, we *might* be able to
host the mentors service on Debian hardware without endangering the
organizations that legally owns or run it.
