Has any tech worker co-op ever achieved "Debian partner" status?

Unless the co-op supplies equipment, the criteria look pretty
unattainable, unless debian has some need for paid maintainers,
technical service or consulting that isn't widely known.

How up-to-date is the partner list?  Black Cat Networks are
listed, but I think they are gone - the link goes to RapidSwitch
and http://www.earth.li/~noodles/blog/2007/08/new-house.html
says it was sold.  If you need a new domain registration partner,
software.coop would probably do it.

What does debian need that would qualify for partner status?
I think most co-ops work on the basis of giving when asked,
rather than offering random stuff we think might be wanted.
