Re: Debian popularity => Debian Pure Blends
I guess that the main question, as already cited by others, is how
derivatives work with Debian Project.
Currently, the Debian Pure Blends concept  is the right way to work
with Debian Project.
Forks are not the efficient way to work with Debian.
Forks are a way to get control over a given project future, with too
Debian Pure Blends is a way to achieve multipath Project future.
So, the Debian Pure Blends should be emphasized.
BrDesktop  is nice idea: a Debian Pure Blend focused on desktop
experience with an interesting proposed release cycle.
