My point about the FSF Debian sister project was that it can be done so

GNU/Hurd and even ReactOS keep a close eye on it.
What on earth is a cluser? And I can't see anything in your reply about
firmware all I see is explanations for Ubuntu's success which I'm not in
the least bit interested in.
1) Lets try a version of Debian Etch without the binary firmware
answered by my /rant/ about firmware and clusers
3) Lets try a medium ground between stable and testing.
I thought you said an alpha release. That is testing. I am not a developer
and I don't use testing, I use Sid. In my eight years with Debian, testing
seems a ....... BLAH BLAH BLAH
This wouldn't be one more step... as I have already explained! It won't
be unstable -> testing -> alpha -> stable... that would be plain stupid.
Alpha will just be a slightly re-badged ISO (one of the weekly generated
ones) that represents a significant but feasibly usable step... it
doesn't need a separate repository or much management at all. Please
re-read what I originally wrote about this idea, I don't think you
grasped how simple the suggestion was.
one more step will do, or how do you talk volunteers into more work?
Thats my personal view, your not meant to go to red alert over it... I
even put a disclaimer at the top.
It wasn't about Ubuntu vs Debian...
Responded to your " FSF endorsing an OS that has a 'Ubuntu Base' <- (again,
*vomits*)" etc etc comments. Sounds like you made it against Ubuntu.
You have a reply-to set you realise so replies go to yourself and not
Please respond back to the debian-user list.
