    Steve, the amount you have done and continue to do for Debian is incredible. Quite aside from the work you do on debian-cd, and you've had some huge challenges to overcome there, you are the lynchpin of all Debian activity in the UK. I probably would not have got involved in the project if it weren't for the inclusive and welcoming community that you have basically stewarded since before I met you in around 2005. Don't let the bastards get you down!
