Re: Is Ubuntu a debian derivative or is it a fork?
* Stephen Birch
| The project seems to have established a mechanism for putting new
| packeges directly into Ubuntu. Are new Ubuntu packages also put in
| Debian by the Ubuntu team members?
| The Ubuntu literature indicates that Ubuntu is a derivative of debian
| but it looks more like a fork to me.
It's a spoon.
| Also, when Ubuntu makes improvements to packages how do those
| improvements flow back to Debian?
Patches to bugs, debian maintainers picking up the patches from the
patch repository, inter-team communication. It depends.
