Debian derivatives census: SolydXK: welcome!

Hi Arjen,

I would like to welcome yourself and SolydXK to the Debian derivatives
census! Would you like to take this opportunity to introduce yourself
and SolydXK 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 SolydXK.


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


The apt repository for SolydXK does not contain source packages for the
security section, including for packages licensed under the GNU GPL.
This may or may not be a copyright violation depending on whether our
not you distribute those elsewhere. In any case, please add source
packages to your repository so that Debian can automatically create
patches to be presented to Debian package maintainers.


Some of the Release files in the apt repository for SolydXK are missing
the Valid-Until header, which allows clients to find out when active
network attackers are holding back newer Release files. At minimum,
rolling releases and suites containing security updates should have this
header. With reprepro you can use the ValidFor config option.


I've added the SolydXK 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 is
fairly close to the start of the conference but it would be great if
developers from SolydXK could attend DebConf. If this isn't possible,
next year DebConf will be in Germany.


I note that SolydXK is partly 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 SolydXK is partly based on Debian testing. A great way to
help ensure Debian testing is working well is to install and run the
how-can-i-help tool and try to work on any issues that come up.


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


I note that SolydXK uses KDE and Xfce, I would encourage you to join the
Debian KDE/Xfce groups.


Please feel free to circulate this mail within the SolydXK team.
