It is nice indeed but not quite the message I wanted to deliver...
I had more of
in mind ;) Having hundreds of nice derivatives with a well setup
workflow Zack illustrated is nice, BUT it is inferior imho to simply
having those efforts within Debian proper in various regards. Yes -- we
could offer more for such customized solutions which require a
derivative now, e.g. extended flavors exposed within official debian
installer, but we also have already working solutions (e.g. blends)
for a field-specific representation of Debian.
