I think it was an unintentional consequence of C&P what the book author
sent me.  I'm just looking at
and agree with you, what a nightmare!

OK, here is what changed.
 - there is now an explanation of Debian's package format (will -> is)
 - there is an overview about standard linux apps (will -> is)
 - Strong emaphasis (will -> will is ? err should be is)
 - the book (will cover -> covers)

I'm curious, it looks to be that the author had a problem with tense,
most changes are from future tense to present, is
there some issue with the German language and tense (will -> is) ?
