Debian derivatives census: Serbian GNU/Linux: welcome!

Hi Debian Srbija :)

I would like to welcome yourself and Serbian GNU/Linux to the Debian
derivatives census! Would you like to take this opportunity to introduce
yourself and Serbian GNU/Linux 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 Serbian GNU/Linux.


You don't appear to be subscribed to the Serbian GNU/Linux census page,
I've made a few changes to the Serbian GNU/Linux census page:


Generally we prefer the census page maintainer to be a human rather than
an address for a group of people.

The page says that Serbian GNU/Linux modifies Debian binary packages. It
is quite rare that distributions modify Debian binary packages instead
of modifying source packages and rebuilding them. Does Serbian GNU/Linux
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.

Would it be possible for you to add the Serbian GNU/Linux sources.list
to the wiki page? This will eventually help feed back patches and new
packages to Debian developers.

The page is missing a dpkg vendor field. It is important that Debian
derivatives set this properly on installed systems and mention the value
of the field in the derivatives census.


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


There doesn't appear to be a blog aggregator for Serbian GNU/Linux
developers. If it existed it would be syndicated on Planet Debian
derivatives and would help the Debian community find out the things that
are happening in Serbian GNU/Linux.


This year the annual Debian conference is in Germany. This isn't
particularly far from Serbia, it would be great if developers from
Serbian GNU/Linux could attend DebConf. If this isn't possible,
next year DebConf will be in South Africa.


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.


I note that Serbian GNU/Linux is based on Debian stable. The Debian
release team recently released a status report 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).


A great way to help ensure that the next Debian release 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 Serbian GNU/Linux uses KDE and Openbox, I would encourage
you to provide feedback and fixes to their Debian maintainers.


Please feel free to circulate this mail within the Serbian GNU/Linux team.
