Belated happy 17th birthday to Debian

Between work and parenthood, I'm struggling to keep on top of things a bit at the moment, but so I'm a bit late to the party.

Debian turned 17 during the week. I think the first thing that brought the fact to my attention was someone sent me a thank you note for maintaining dstat (of all things) via thanks.debian.net, which Marga set up.

I've been a Debian Developer for 7 of those 17 years now, and it's been great. I've learned heaps about Linux and Linux software packaging, and been able to give something back to the distro that I love. My time commitment waxes and wanes as real life permits, and my involvement in the community has dropped to almost nothing, again for time reasons, but I hope to be able to get more involved again in the future.
