Thank you for the notice, I fixed the entry to use my private email.

What I was trying to say is that nobody of the cdvendors team objected to
the addition and simply gave reasons why it was not _yet_ done. Thus I tried
to help for my specific case. If anyone of the cdvendors@ team has
problems with my entry, they are free to drop it/modify it/ask me to fix

BTW, someone of the team should update the listing on

I agree that some information should be added to inform that most
images are unofficial. For now I have put it in the architecture field
that way:
"official: multi-arch; unofficial: multi-arch, amd64, i386"

But I don't agree on the principle of hiding the unofficial images just
for the sake of it. BTW, the page http://www.debian.org/CD/vendors/info
explicitly mentions "Produce your own custom CDs" as valid way for CD
vendors to sell Debian CD. And I don't use "Official Debian CD" anywhere
except for the official multi-arch one.
