I am not against a rename some much, but DIS is no better than CDD, really,
so I am rather with Gert and Karsten. Better than DIS may be DUC (pronounced
duck or dak) as an acronym for Debian User Community. I never understood
though why it was nut just called Special Interest Group (SIG), something that
everyone would grasp immediately.

So I think we should go on renaming what formerly used to be
Custom Debian Distributions to

       Debian Integrated Solutions



because it is a dish we provide a flavour.

Please comment on this.

I think it is a waste of energy to rename CDD.
And it would a waste of my energy to attempt to stop the renaming.

For those with losts of energy, don't kill
    Debian Med Project List <debian-med@lists.debian.org>,
    debian-edu@lists.debian.org, debian-science@lists.debian.org,
    Debian Junior <debian-jr@lists.debian.org>
to make the new
Custom Debian Distributions <debian-custom@lists.debian.org> a great "succes".

Use your energy to write better software, to marketeer the current name.

I think it is not too bad name (DIS), even when referring mostly to issues of electronics is being used as a filter or a function to locate, which may be good for computer is looking to locate and identify any kind of attack.
from my point of view I agree.
