I considered making an official subproject, but since it is just the
continuation of the works of a BOF, I thought we'd best spend some time
to better organize ideas. For that reason, Alioth seemed good.
However, I realize this is a good occasion to start a discussion in
debian-devel to verify the need of such a subproject.
Good! Let's do it.
What would a Debian Usability project do?
Why not Debian QA?
If I should give a definition of Debian Usability, I'd go with:
Identify problems in how Debian, or a part of it, addresses a
particular, practical need. Then study them, and find solutions.
About Debian QA, I'd like to hear the Debian QA people on this: AFAIR
they have always been focused on more practical issues, but this doesn't
mean that they are not interested.
Who's interested? Me, for sure!
