Debian and its LTS Team would like to thank all contributing users,
developers and sponsors who are making it possible to extend the life of previous stable releases, and who have made this LTS a success.

providing patches, testing or funding the efforts .
The Debian Project was founded in 1993 by Ian Murdock to be a truly free community project. Since then the project has grown to be one of the
largest and most influential open source projects. Thousands of
volunteers from all over the world work together to create and maintain
Debian software. Available in 70 languages, and supporting a huge range
of computer types, Debian calls itself the "universal operating system".
