Debian derivatives census: hLinux: welcome!

Hi Joshua,

I would like to welcome yourself and hLinux to the Debian derivatives
census! Would you like to take this opportunity to introduce yourself
and hLinux to us all? I expect some people will be familiar with it due
to the hLinxu presence at DebConf14 but others may not be.


I see you've joined our IRC channel and assume you joined the list too:


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 hLinux.


I'd encourage you to subscribe to the hLinux census page if you haven't.


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

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.


There doesn't appear to be a hLinux blog or a blog aggregator for
hLinux developers. If these existed they would be syndicated on Planet
Debian derivatives and would help the Debian community find out the
things that are happening in hLinux.


I'd like to thank HP (the hLinux corporate sponsor) for being a major
sponsor of DebConf15, I expect some hLinux folks will be attending?


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 would encourage you and the hLinux team to get involved in Debian's
OpenStack and Cloud efforts if you aren't already.


You might want to consider adding DNSSEC to hp.com, TLSA records and SSL
to some of your domains. You might also want to add HSTS headers.
Currently the hLinux website has an invalid SSL cert and the HP website
redirects from HTTPS to HTTP.

Please feel free to circulate this mail within the hLinux team & HP.
