Non sequitur. A more correct conclusion is that Fresco uses a service that
came to existence because of several reasons, behind which is Debian. It
doesn't remain to exist because of Debian -- if Debian dropped off the face
of the Earth and Fresco remained, I (and I trust several other SPI members)
would do whatever we could to maintain Fresco stuff, otherwise why bother in
the first place?

Yeah, don't remind us of that pointless series of flamewars on Debian
mailing lists when ftp-master was relocated out of Brainfood. :p
It is exactly because of those feelings that issues such as where something
is hosted can't be done rationally as they should.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
