Bug#613832: www.debian.org: Debian sister association in the merchandise page



Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

Hi there!

I think we need to document this somewhere and with my events@d.o hat on
this is the BTS.  Please keep it cc:ed when the discussion is relevant
or follow-up on debian-www@: this is a website problem, as I just wrote
in the announcement for the new events@d.o handling [1].

Noted, but I still need to acquaint myself with WML [3], if someone from
the Webmaster team wants to quickly fix it, please go on.

Yesterday, while reviewing debian-www@ spam [4] I found out something
related which should be taken care of when we are going to restructure
that page [5].  No flames, please.

Again, no flames, please.

That being said, it does not matter who is on the board and who is not
and for those who do not know that already, I am the current debian.ch
president.

Yes, debian.ch *is* a special case, no matter what other people say.  It
is a special case exactly as any other *official* Debian sister
association.

Yes, I agree that we need a special case for these sister association,
but *only* if, as Adrian already wrote in his reply, the money that they
own is under the authority of the Debian project.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
