Re: Microflyer

Hi James,

Your PR has been merged, I've just built assembly.pdf locally, that works
flawlessly.  So thanks for this nice work!  You write:

"All of the software source code developed by the Debian community is available
for you to read, edit and redistribute."

Maybe change that to "All of the software source code shipped by the Debian
community [...]": most of the code is from upstream, I believe.

Also, of course the "63,000+ packaged" metric needs maintenance; it would
likely need to get adjusted at least once every 2 years.  Unfortunately
I have no suggestion on how to make sure this will happen...

What could furthermore get changed is: "by a large community of volunteers" in
"by a community of over 1,000 volunteers": that will likely stay true for at
least 10 years.

These are just suggestions feel free to either ignore or implement them.

You might also want to ask the people @ the
https://lists.debian.org/debian-www/ list for proofreading.

Thanks again! Bye,
