Debian derivatives census: ToriOS: welcome!

Hi Israel,

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


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


The page says that ToriOS modifies some packages but doesn't say if it
modifies binary packages or source packages. Could you clarify that?

Would it be possible for you to add the ToriOS 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 ToriOS blog to Planet Debian derivatives which helps the
Debian community find out the things that are happening in the world of
Debian derivatives.


ToriOS folks might be interested in joining the Debian local groups
from around the world.


Next year the annual Debian conference is in Montreal, Canada. It would
be great if developers from ToriOS could attend DebConf. If this isn't
possible, next year DebConf will be in either Taiwan or Brasil.


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 ToriOS 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 (stretch).


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.


You might want to consider adding DNSSEC to your domains, TLSA records
and SSL to some of your domains. SSL on the repository will help ToriOS
users to obscure package names and version numbers from global active
adversaries. You might also want to add HSTS headers.

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