And what evidence do you have that the website has been
breached/compromised by anyone other than the Debian website maintainers

There's a LONG history on the net of people mucking with their own
websites (among doing other things) as part of an April Fools gag.  I
strongly suspect that's what has happened there.

Indeed. Like this: http://itsfoss.com/linus-torvalds-to-join-microsoft/

For those of us with a sense of humor, yes. :-)

Bret apparently has never been online on April 1st before. A *lot* of tech sites pull April Fools jokes. Slashdot used to be notorious for it, especially when Rob Malda was at the helm...
