"Policies are also a feature of the Debian project." that is true. However, the very first sentence in the lead says: "Debian is an operating system". If 188.8.131.52 does not understand what this article is about, how can the editor make proper decisions? I am going to let 184.108.40.206 edit the article as much as wanted; I can repair it later. A warning: references that should go away do not need to be fixed. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 02:12, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
"If 18.104.22.168 does not understand what this article is about" - maybe 22.214.171.124 understood that better than 126.96.36.199? In the second sentence it says "Debian is one of the most popular Linux distributions" and under "Features" it says "Distributions". So, is it one or is it several distributions? Then, in the category section it says "Category:Free software culture and documentsCategory:Debian Project leadersCategory:Debian people". Do Wikipedia articles restricted to software reside in the category tree for "culture and documents" or "people"? Are policies part of the OS? Was the "2008 OpenSSL vulnerability" part of the OS? Why is the latter placed under Policies? Why is Ubuntu mentioned under Policies? Can 188.8.131.52 explain the mess? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 06:43, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
If 220.127.116.11 is asking why I have not fixed every issue in this article yet, then the answer should be obvious: I am not a bot (MediaWiki asks me several times) and I have to convince people of my edits. So, one issue at a time, the WikiProject discussion being the priority. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:31, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
"Distribution" is Debian lexicon; it is a bit confusing. Let us try the "branch" nomenclature. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 16:23, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

The current image of Buzz Lightyear seems out of place, but I thought I would bring it up here. Is there any reason for its presence, apart from the fact that he has a swirl on his chin? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:27, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
Hello! Well, one theory says that Buzz's swirl is shared with the one on Debian's logo, so having the image included should make some sense. — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 23:33, 8 December 2014 (UTC)
The article says "Testing becomes Stable, and Unstable becomes Testing", which is incorrect. Unstable doesn't become anything, but rather packages migrate to Testing from it after a few days. I'd fix this inaccuracy myself, but I'm not sure of how to reword this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:805:8101:8F9F:2225:64FF:FE7B:9B52 (talk) 03:50, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
