[1] 609 GB - Size - http://www.debian.org/mirror/size.en.html

This is great job. Thank you for licensing that under the GPL!
FWIW, my Okular doesn't like the PDF at all.

Just a question on the text, is it based on some blurb or completely original? I find some numbers a little deceiving. We may have 40 000 packages with some computation, but our stable i386 has only 29500, and that's binary packages. I find 14 500 source packages more representative.
We could probably find 15 Debian architectures in some way, but squeeze only supports "32-bit PC / Intel IA-32 (i386), 64-bit PC / Intel EM64T / x86-64 (amd64), Motorola/IBM PowerPC (powerpc), Sun/Oracle SPARC (sparc), MIPS (mips (big-endian) and mipsel (little-endian)), Intel Itanium (ia64), IBM S/390 (s390), and ARM EABI (armel)", which is - at best - 9 architectures.
Finally, regarding the 609 GB, this size is interesting for mirror administrators, but for general marketing, the nicely round 50 GB of data for i386 seems like a more meaningful measurement.

The current numbers may be bigger, but they may be more scary than anything - the "actual" numbers are already quite big IMO! That could be kept in mind for the next anniversary.

Thank you very much again, and happy anniversary.
