Even if you missed it on some of the news sites, let me tell you:

DCC will not be a fork. The "Debian" in the name, that's confusing some so 
much, is neither meant to be a trademark violation nor shall it be used for 
something that is not Debian. Instead if means that the core is built from 
Debian and as part of Debian. 

Please take my, and I assume the remaining companies will agree, apologies for 
launching DCCA before talking to you all, but there were some marketing 
needs. DCC shall become an official Debian subproject asap.

Ans yes, that means that we would like to implement all ideas into Debian. 
Some will make it in as new packages, some might just be enhancements of 
existing stuff.
