The problem is that we want to get those "Custom Debian Distributions"
which where formerly known as "Debian Internal Projects" which are
Debian-Jr, Debian-Med, Debian-Edu, Debian-Np, Debian-Lex and others
(see my talk once people.d.o is up again) under one common thing.
These Custom Distributions use the technique of metapackages and have
common goals and try to develop common technologies.
It would be easy to mention these under one common term for an easy
reference. In Oslo was a decision to name it "Custom Debian Distribution"
and if we try to speak with each other we have to agree about some
terms. This thread shows that there is not yet an agreement and this
sucks because we have to explain over and over again what we are talking
For instance we have defined a term "Package Pools" and everybody now
knows what we are talking about ...
