Open Source Press / No Starch Press as Debian Partner

Dear webmasters,

I am negotiating with my publisher No Starch Press over the next
edition of my book, and they pointed out to me that even though
we've been giving $1/1€ for each sold book (that would mean about
20k!) to Debian, neither No Starch nor Open Source Press have
a mention on http://www.debian.org/partners/.

I would like to fix that. Does anyone have any objections for me
