Except that he hasn't reduced the number of Debian distributions, he is even 
still doing Squeeze.  So that would have been even more misleading.  

E Liddell said Debian DESCENDED distributions.  An important distinction.  The 
only things being reduced are Ubuntu.  Sl�vek does say that explicitly.  The 
subject could perhaps have been: "Reducing the number of distributions I 
support", but Sl�vek is not a native English speaker.  Or perhaps, for full 
lack of all ambiguity, "Reducing the number of Ubuntu versions I support"

Regular readers of the list know that Sl�vek isn't the/an rpm supporter.
