Re: what debian-np *should* do
I'm excited by the possibility of a modular distro (workstation,
But a software distribution is only the first step. I'm much more
interested in the kinds of documentation and support resources that
could spring up around this project.

useful work for my org. I can even put together a tailored collection of
packages and configs and give it to my coworkers.

play nicely on my network. Documenting all of this is a monumental
undertaking, but I'm willing to help as the project moves forward.
