Hi Jorge,

First, thanks a lot for this work.

Here are some comments about Debian/ForDebianDevelopers:

* title reads as "Debian For Debian Developers", which is a bit strange.
  renaming to "Debian/UbuntuForDebianDevelopers" would fix that.

* I think that "DDs" is usually written "DDs", not "DD's".

* In "What is MOTU?", I don't find it appropriate to tell readers about
  the process to become a MOTU. If Debian developers want to become
  MOTUs, they will probably be able to find our by themselves about the
  process and the skills required.

* In "Resources", you mention "ContributingToDebian", which redirects to
  ForDebianDevelopers. Same problem with DebianDemystification that
  links to ForUbuntuDevelopers.
