Re: Questions about Debian materials/topics for NorthEastLinuxFest

Hi Luca,

It seems I have forgotten to thank you -- Thank you! ;)

So I kept publicity and project in addresses for now

Thanks again

Thanks for forwarding the reply, unfortunately it was not yet fruitful
there either ;)

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.
