Dear -www team,
  I hereby forward to the BTS an excerpt of an ongoing discussion on
-project, which revamps a former proposal by Yaroslav Halchenko to
include links to blends from the Debian homepage.

Thanks in advance for considering,

Hi All,

Debian Pure Blends are now linked from Debian's homepage (once the site
rebuilds). The landing page for Pure Blends is at:


I realise, looking at the bug log, that I said I would ping debian-project
before making this change, but I forgot to do this. If there is a
compelling reason to revert the change to the front page, then please do
ask me to revert the change or revert it yourself and we can discuss this
futher. Hopefully that won't be necessary.
