That's just the thing -- Because I am a Debian developer, my packages are
implicitly the ones endorsed by Debian, and they are distributed by all the
Debian mirrors

Debian is a Linux distribution which is built by the people for the people.
Essentially a group of people are trusted to look after and package software
for Debian. We upload it to the Debian servers and it is distributed around
the world. Periodically, when we are ready, we release a 'Stable' revision
of the whole operating system.
