What is the difference?
A DD may choose to use Debian as the primary distribution point for the source
of a program that they are developing. If that program is a fork of someone
else's program then it's a Debian fork.
Programs which are forked in Debian include PAM, cron, and sysvinit is coming
close. I think it would be better for everyone if we just acknowledged
what's happened and call these Debian forks.
