Not silly, it's our fault.

We have this wiki page: https://wiki.debian.org/WhoUsesDebian
and some more info here:
https://salsa.debian.org/webmaster-team/webwml/tree/master/english/users

But we failed to include that info in the bug report (fixing it now by CC'ing
the bug address).

Depending on the skills, time and motivation of the contributor(s) willing to
help updating /users, the process has been more or less automated (e.g. others
use a script to produce the mails, I write them manually with a Thunderbird
template, etc.).

We've been updating the /users section in several batches since some years. I
sent my last mails about this in 2016, and couldn't find the time to put on this
task since then. I guess the other contributors also prioritised other tasks
when contributing to Debian.

If you want to help with the Who's using Debian section update, feel free to
send a mail to the bug (766923@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx), and we can try to resume the
work together.

About general info/guidance for newcomers, we have www.debian.org/intro/help as
has been pointed out already, and also https://wiki.debian.org/Welcome/

In the Debian Project News (https://www.debian.org/News/weekly/ ) we usually
have a section "Help needed" linking to the packages that need help, the
newcomer bug list, and specific help for teams that told us to publish an
announce about help needed.

Thanks!
