In chapter 7. Security of the Debian system on page 373:

The first text paragraph on page 373 in section 7.5.1 talks about the archive key, which was signed by one of the FTP masters, Anthony Towns. Later in the paragraph, Anthony suddenly becomes James. It should just say Anthony all along

Discussion

When the section in question was written (in 2004), the archive key had been signed by James Troup, who is also an FTP master. When the delay of sarge pushed the release of this book into 2005, I chose to rework the sections with the new key for 2005, which had been signed by Anthony Towns instead. Obviously, I was not careful about the change.

Feedback

Christian Einfeldt, MadPenguin: Martin's interesting 37-page chapter on how Debian is structured [...] will probably become a small, but important and enduring part of the stories that Debian developers will tell about themselves. [...] Martin's thorough, but succinct, summary of the Debian project will be one of the features that will cause Debian fans to keep Martin's book in a well-thumbed condition on their shelves.
