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

Mark Gibbs, Network World (28 Nov 2005): This book is unusual in that it is much more than a technical discussion - it delves into the philosophy of the system, explains how someone becomes a recognized Debian developer and details the way that Debian is licensed. That's not to say the book doesn't get technical. It provides a very well-written, soup-to-nuts explanation of how Debian is organized; how to install, configure and modify the system; and how to administer and secure it. Excellent and highly recommended.
