Firstly, I'm not saying that. Secondly, that's one of the main arguments
to introduce said changes. The argument was (not that it wasn't written
out often enough) that derivatives provide something we don't: more
current software; some as rolling releases, some on scheduled releases
etc. The idea is, if we provide something similar, not the same of
course, users who care for such come to us. It's as simple as that.
