Information for Debian Consultants
If you want to be listed as a consultant at the Debian website, then please note the following rules:
- Mandatory contact information:
You must provide a working email address and answer emails sent to you within four weeks at least. In order to prevent abuse, any requests (additions, removals, or changes) have to be sent from that same address. To avoid spam, you can request to have your mail address scrambled (e.g. debian -dot- consulting -at- example -dot- com). Please note this explicitly in your submission. Alternatively, you can request that your email address does not appear on the website at all (although we need a working email address for list maintenance). If you want your address to be hidden on the list, you can instead provide the URL of a contact form on your website for us to link to. Contact is meant to be used for this.
- Your website:
If you provide a link to a website, that website must have a mention of your Debian consulting services. Providing the direct link instead of just the homepage is not mandatory if the information is reasonably accessible, but much appreciated.
- Multiple cities/regions/countries:
You have to choose the country (only one) that you want to be listed under. Additional cities, regions or countries should be listed either as part of the additional info or on your own website.
- Rules for Debian developers:
You are not allowed to use your official @debian.org email address for the consultant listing. The same goes for your website: you may not use an official *.debian.org domain as described in the DMUP (Debian Machine Usage Policies).
If the above criteria are no longer met at some future point, the consultant should receive a warning message that they are about to be removed from the list, unless they fulfill all criteria again. There should be a grace period of four weeks.
Some parts (or all) of the consultant's information can be removed if they don't comply with this policy anymore, or at the discretion of the list maintainers.
If you wish to be added to the list of consultants, please send an email to email@example.com, in English, providing any of the following pieces of information that you would like to be listed (email address is mandatory, everything else is optional at your discretion):
- Country for which you want to be listed
- Additional information
