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.

Glenn English: "The Debian System" is exactly the one I'd been looking for. It's an excellent discussion of sarge (3.1), and it's full of useful information: theory, philosophy, HOWTO, and why. [...] And the best thing about it is that when it's lying open by the keyboard, the book doesn't try to close itself -- the pages lie flat. [...] Kudos to the publisher! And you, too. This is a marvelous piece of work.
