I think these last diverging proposals "Distribution x Solution",
"Remixed x Integrated" and so on, just confirms that we don't have
enough understanding of what is (or should be) a ${CDD} (sorry Andreas,
but I don't feel ready to use DIS).

IMHO Debian-Edu well fits in "Solution", but not Debian-Med, that fits
in "Integrated".

Now I would like to see (and join) into an effort to finish the first
${CDD} formal specification before any renaming. Andreas has done a
great work on this and it's a good time to help him there[0].
