In the Debian-Guide under "What is Free Software?", at the end of the first 
paragraph, it says:
"Recently, some people have started calling Free Software ``Open Source 
Software''; the two terms are interchangable."

Also, the last paragraph of this document refers to and in this order.

In the light of many discussions here on this list, this seems unacceptable.
The rest of the text seems quite good, though.

Perhaps someone should talk to the Debian people - or is there a Debian 
developer on this list?

Also, an encouragement to include similar texts in the more mainstream 
GNU/Linux distributions could help.
