The current project leader of Debian,  Bruce Perens,  works for Pixar,
the computer company that made the "Toy Story" movie in the US.  I think
it was marketed by Disney,  which means it's probably available ALL OVER
the world. 

	Anyway,  it's been a debian inside joke now for a while to name
upcoming releases with codenames taken from the "Toy Story" movie.  I
think Debian 1.2 was "rex",  1.3 was "bo" and now the Debian 2.0
development tree is code-named "hamm".  

	It's lead to some confusion because some people use the "hamm"
links,  some use "unstable",  and some use "2.0".  They're all the same.
