 I think Debian's current approach/relationship with derivatives is
 just showing "free to take it" panel, so I want to change it to
 "listen and learn something that is missing and room for improvement
 in current Debian".

 I like Ubuntu since they are doing and continue some challenges.

 Some of them are yes, but not entire all of them.

 Hmm. It would be nice that all of derivatives' nice features go
 into blends, and derivatives apply just their own default settings
 that does not fit to Debian.

 It would be good to reduce delta with derivatives for both, and we
 also should decrease our delta (debian/patches) to upstream. Just
 "adjust/refresh patches" is not fun, and maybe introduce some bugs.
 That's not good for us, and our users.
