I've been having a look at the Debian Pure Blends general documentation.
I found that there was an initial effort for Debian Enterprise back in 2003
that lost air (humm... that's more or less by the same dates when Bruce
Perens was pushing his UserLinux project. Are/were those two somehow
related?). If this new push takes moment somebody will need to remember to
update the pages listing blends*1,2.
Within Debian Enterprise goals *1 I miss trying to offer a common
framework/best practices so all the other blends can take advantage of it
when deployed in a corporate/professional environment. After all, they all
need, say, authentication/authorization, disaster recovery, file/print
services, etc. so why not sharing components?
Regarding sharing components, the documentation*3 states that "...People who
are interested in working on common issues like building metapackages,
technical issues of menu systems or how to create CDs for Blends could
subscribe to this list or read the list archive." but this list is marked
as "dead list"*4: docs should be updated either with the new list, if it
exists or stating its dead status (alternatively, the list can be came back
into live if it regains interest).
