Hope you don't mind but I have shared this wider with Lincoln LUG and
Lincolnshire LUG; posted it on my FB & G+ account; tweeted it and done a
forum post on CrunchBang Linux forums to raise the profile, and hopefully
get you some more signatures on the e-petition. I'll also badger hubby,
Philip, to share it wider amongst his open source friends!

As they say, every little helps! :D
