A number of derivatives don't make binaries publically available, or they
don't have reasonably obvious places to go to get the binaries and/or
source. I certainly haven't seen a derivative put up a diff repository like
Ubuntu has. I know it's not a giant leap in terms of usability or the
effort required to implement it, but it's a baby step further than any other
derivative has gone (AFAIK).
