What is the Partners Program?
The Partners Program was created to recognize companies and organizations that provide ongoing assistance to Debian. Because of the substantial support provided by these partners, we have been able to expand and improve Debian. We would like to officially recognize their efforts, and continue to maintain a good working relationship.
