In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 166:

The item on components on the top of page 166 states that components "also specify when non-US software is to be used."

This should say "non-free software" instead. Components cannot be used to select non-US software.

Feedback

Christian Einfeldt, MadPenguin: Martin follows [a] general pedagogic method throughout all of the technical chapters of his book: policy; concept; techniques; and examples. I say pedagogic, not pendantic. Martin is not going to talk down to you, but he will give you puh-lenty of deep info about the Debian utilities and fundamental code structures [...]. In fact, this text certainly is suitable for a college-level course on computer system administration.
