Right; so the partnership program is a way to acknowledge long-time
Debian contributing organisations, such as sponsors, donors, etc.

It could be a proper way to thank such organisations; however, it might
be good to more actively work on that list. For instance, it still lists
Sun Microsystems as a partner (we may have to confirm they still want to
be one, and replace the name by Oracle if they do); and some of the
links to "more information" to some of the partners' websites that I
followed are dead, which could mean that they've stopped helping Debian.

I'm not sure that fits my definition of 'working well'; I should
probably look into this a bit more, though.

The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.
