I would really love it if people would start to understand that it would be
the lowest effort to add good things INTO Debian instead of trying to
fork and add good things afterwards. Why not working on internationalisation
OF DEBIAN and instead adding it to a fork. Those people waste their time
by building a separate infra structure outside Debian. They invent things
which they could have for free.
Adding things missing in Debian might be a hard job for the moment but
it is worth the effort for the future.
Please double read my talk about Debian internal projects at
and let the Linuxin people read it. Debian really needs internationalisation
and it would be great if those people would spend their time FOR Debian
and gain profit for their own goal in doing this.
