Thorough agreement. I believe a debian-enterprise sub-project would
serve very well to gather support from various companies that utilize
Debian. At the software company I used to work at we had various
"local" packages, mostly site-specific, but as manager I would have
readily given approval to make all applicable work available to
Having a focal point is a great thing. Wishlists, mailing lists,
and like minded people all come together to build small pieces of
the communal puzzle.
Also, definitely debian-enterprise, not debian-user subproject.
Plenty of user stuff already (-multimedia, -jr, -med, etc).
Perhaps, for anyone wondering whether separate or sub project is
the way - check out DeMuDi (external distro) which is now kind
of morphing into debian-multimedia sub project.
Is there enough concensus to start a list - anyone with the resource
access and experience to create a webpage for the subproject?
I will join the list as soon as it's available.
Bruce Perens mentioned in an interview recently (not so recent I
can remember the link though sorry) that he feels the time is
ripe for just such a sub project. My feeling was that there are
potentially some large corporates who would back such a move
(HP?, SUN? - I don't know, but we can guess).
