I have a question about Debian whitelist that was prompted by this thread.
Am I on the whitelist? I googled to find out how to find the answer.
The hits that I got all seemed to be rather old and likely out of date.
Is Debian whitelist an active part of Debian in year 2009? Does a user
need to be listed in it in order to get questions posted promptly?
The reason I ask is that I can't remember ever having inserted my name
onto the list, and all my problems with the list seem to have been not
with Debian, but with my ISP. Or maybe I'm fooling myself and Debian is
really at fault.
