Thanks a lot for organizing the meeting and for this minutes. (I'm
ashamed of admitting that I've misread the meeting timing; baffled by
the 12 am/pm issue I thought it was 12 hours later... Sorry about that.)

Nice to see that items on this list have actually already happened :)

Just to be sure we're on the same page, the way I read this is:
standardize a way on which derivatives could advertise the fact they are
based on Debian. That could be beneficial for them, in case their public
is aware of what Debian is and can appreciate that heritage as a good
sign; but it will obviously be beneficial for us as well, as it'll give
more credit to the widespread reach of the work which is done in Debian
in the first place.  Is that what you had in mind?

I'd welcome work in that direction and I'll be happy to help (although I
can't offer to take the lead).

IIRC something similar has been proposed a long time ago by Anthony
Towns when he was DPL, but never really completed. I'm not aware of any
existing draft work in this direction either. It'd be wonderful to
resurrect that initiative.
