Debian Quiz game


During one of DebConf14 evenings, I raised the idea of creating a
'Debian Quiz', inspired from the famous TCP/IP Drinking Game that used
to be maintained by Valerie Aurora [1,2].

Q: Order correctly hamm, bo, potato, slink
Q: Order correctly lenny, woody, etch, sarge
Q: what was the first release with an "and-a-half" release?
Q: name the kernel version for sarge, etch, lenny, squeeze, wheezy. bonus for etch-n-half!
Q: What was Dunc Tank about? Who was the DPL at the time? Who were the release managers during Dunc Tank?

Q: What does piuparts stand for?
Q: What is the codename for experimental?

Q: When was the Debian Maintainers status created?

However, I lack the time to turn this into something better, so I'm looking for

I've pushed the current state (with answers!) to collab-maint:

It would be great if a team could magically form to maintain it as a Debian
package. I'm Ccing people who already expressed interest in helping with this,
but feel free to just join the fun!
