For one, of course one problem is that the software we distribute in the

anyone who needs current desktop software. It would be absolutely, and
I say absolutely I mean absolutely, necessary, to fix this situation. If
there is one instance inside of Debian which has this duty, then it is
to us to create something which gives the user more actual software
not being completely unstable.
Problem: Software in "stable" is too old.
Anyway, those are just some ideas to toss around. I don't think a
seperate Debian-Desktop distribution is the answer, although I don't see
any reason we couldn't make and host our own "updates" repository.
I agree that a seperate distribution is not the answer we are looking for
here. Then we would become just another debian derative. This project
aims to make a desktop Debian. Creating new repositories, wether an
updates repositority, or different testing and stable repos is the best
way to deal with this. Of course this is the precise reason I suggested
we have a meeting.
