Why couldn't they?  Or was it merely that they wouldn't?

Great!  Where is that discussion?

When colleagues and myself asked about becoming debian partners, we
were directed towards http://www.debian.org/devel/join/ instead.  I'm
already a DD and I think some of my colleagues are, but we're a bit
limited in what development we can do on company time without
justifying it for business reasons - I think debian partner status
would help justify it.

Unless it supplies equipment, the criteria look pretty unattainable
for tech worker co-ops, unless debian has some need for paid
maintainers, core technical service or consulting that isn't widely

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.

I think I emailed this to partners@debian.org previously without
seeing a reply to that part, but I could be wrong.

"Any eligible organization missing from this list is probably not
intentional.  Please contact us to suggest inclusion of a missing
