In chapter 2. The Debian Project on page 32:

The fourth paragraph of the subsection entitled "The early days" in "A history lesson" states that Debian rex was released in December "of the same year". This refers to the release of buzz in June 1996, not the release of the Debian botch in December 1995. rex was released in December 1996.


Ute Hertzog

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.
