Joerg immedeiately set to work and  
[http://blog.ganneff.de/blog/2008/04/22/ftpmaster.html announced] a number

accounts, this delegation helps to address 
[http://www.lucas-nussbaum.net/blog/?p=286 doubts] about Debian's readiness

but are not otherwise informed about Debian that while the doubts are not 
taken out of thin air, they are being addressed.
