Debian derivatives census: HandyLinux: welcome!

Hi arpinux,

I would like to welcome yourself and HandyLinux to the Debian
derivatives census! Would you like to take this opportunity to introduce
yourself and HandyLinux to us all? 


It would be great if you could join our mailing list and IRC channel:


I would encourage you to look at Debian's guidelines for derivatives:


You may want to look at our census QA page, some of the mails from there
may apply to HandyLinux.


You don't appear to be subscribed to the HandyLinux census page, I've
made a few changes:


The page says that HandyLinux modifies Debian binary packages. It is
quite rare that distributions modify Debian binary packages. Does
HandyLinux actually do this? If so could you describe what kind of
modifications you are making? If not I guess the page needs to be fixed.

Since HandyLinux is based in France you might be interested in joining
the Debian France non-profit organisation.


I've added the HandyLinux blog to Planet Debian derivatives which helps
the Debian community find out the things that are happening in the world
of Debian derivatives.


This year the annual Debian conference is in Portland, OR, USA. It would
be great if developers from HandyLinux could attend DebConf. 


I would encourage any attendees to volunteer to ensure the continued the
success of the annual Debian conference, here are some examples of
things that need helpers from last year.


I note that HandyLinux is based on Debian stable. The Debian release
team recently released a timeline for the freeze for the next Debian
stable release. I would encourage you to review it and prepare your
plans for rebasing on the next Debian release (jessie).


I note that HandyLinux uses DebianLive, I would encourage you to
provide feedback and fixes to the live team.


I note that HandyLinux uses Xfce, I would encourage you to join the
Debian Xfce group.


Please feel free to circulate this mail to HandyLinux folks.
