I asked ompaul what it was he was thinking when this suggestion came to pass.

Delta D is a Delta from Dapper

Delta H is a Delta from Hardy

That was the source.

DeltaH is

The word delta from the mathematical source in greek used as a measure of a small change.

As you most likely know we needed to get a word into the sources.list field.

Mark Shuttleworth's words rang in my head about the expense of maintaining software deltas, we got a disto our of our changes. ;-)
