I'm also one of those strange people who actually reads docs.

What do I do when I find terms such as initrd or udeb ?

And before I get too much grief from youngsters - From personal experience
do you have any clue of relevance of CORC, CUPL, WATFOR, WATFIV, 026, 12AX7,
etc, etc ;/ ?

I'm looking for a self sufficient reference.

P.S. I'm also of era of S100, CPM, KIM, SYM,  CBM etc etc etc ;)

Try http://wiki.debian.org/Glossary

That's what I was looking for.


That site also has some interesting pages. "The Debian Maintenance HOWTO" ( http://www.infodrom.org/Debian/doc/maint/ ) appears to rate a detailed read.

And a general google may work for some things (depending on how
overloaded it is), maybe with "debian" added to the search.

Google is a last resort. Filtering "wheat from chaff" can be a pain.
