Creating New Derivative Volian
I am working on a project to create a derivative of Debian. It will be
It's mostly a personal project and it will take a while to complete, but
I'd like to do it properly if I'm going to do it.
I have created the volian-team on salsa to host our changes.
as of right now I only have a fork of SELinux refpolicy where I updated
everything to the latest release and fixed some bugs with firewalld.
Volian is going to be very similar to Debian, at least in the start. But
it will use SELinux and firewalld by default.
I've read all of the documentation I could find on the Debian wiki, and
the main question I still have lingering is since
I'll be using Debian Sids repos and then layering my own on top, what is
the best way to ensure that my packages take precedent over the Debian
I'm not able, at the moment, to mirror Debian and alter the packages
For Example if Debian's package
selinux-policy-default_2.20210203-10_all.deb and Volian's with my
modifications are the same version how is best to handle this to ensure
mine is used?
I haven't tested it but would something like
selinux-policy-default_2.20210203-10volian1_all.deb be proper and work
for my needs?
