Bug#419081: www.debian.org: Terminology issue: GNU/NetBSD

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: important
Tags: patch

[(X-Debbugs-)CCing the porters' list]

The Debian GNU/kNetBSD port is referred incorrectly as "GNU/NetBSD".
I assume this mistake was not intentional and the pages just haven't
been updated for a while.  By contrast, this is not the case with
kfreebsd-gnu -- the GNU/kFreeBSD folks have been referring to the
system with its proper name (also on wiki.d.o).  We (the GNU
Webmasters) would be grateful if this issue is fixed, so that we can
amend the last paragraph of [1] in a similar fashion like [2].

Please consider applying the attached patch.

The old kfreebsd port page [3] is deprecated, but it is included in
the diff since it is still online.  I didn't touch anything under
/News, /events and the translations.

Also, I was wondering why the knetbsd-gnu ports are still called
netbsd-i386 and netbsd-alpha (i.e. without the "k" prefix)?  Is this
for historical reasons?  dpkg-architecture lists both variants.
