Oh, and incidentally, neither translation is correct German. You need to
add a dash ("Debian-Gesellschaftsvertrag") - unlike in English, you're not
allowed to build a chain of nouns separated by space in German.

(Yes, this rule is widely ignored especially by marketing and high-tech
people - a fine example of "Denglisch".)
