The Debian Project is pleased to announce the availability of
its <a href="$(HOME)/intro/diversity">diversity statement</a>.

The <strong>technical</strong> part of Debian Project is already
committed to diversity: we don't accept discrimination against persons,
groups or fields of endeavor in our softwares
(<a href="$(HOME)/social_contract#guidelines">Debian Free Software
Guidelines, points 5 and 6</a>).
Now, the <strong>community</strong> part of Debian Project explicitly
welcomes and encourages participation by everyone.

<q>The constructive and fruitful discussion that led to the current
version of this statement was really encouraging</q> said Francesca 
Ciceri who proposed the initial draft and took a lot of other opinions into account.
<q>I'd like to thank all the persons who participate in the drafting process
proposing changes and fixes, explaining different point of views and
approving this initiative</q>, Francesca added.

<q>This statement marks a new stage in the process of welcoming
contributors in our project</q> said Stefano Zacchiroli, who see it as
a mean to <q>be faithful to our vocation of universality</q>.

<h2>About Debian</h2>

The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly
free community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of
the largest and most influential open source projects.  Thousands of
volunteers from all over the world work together to create and
maintain Debian software. Available in 70 languages, and
supporting a huge range of computer types, Debian calls itself the
<q>universal operating system</q>.

The Debian Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone.
<br /><br />
It doesn't matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you:
we welcome you.
We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they
interact constructively with our community.
<br /><br />
While much of the work for our project is technical in nature, we 
equally value and encourage contributions from those with expertise in other areas,
and welcome them into our community.
