Unfortunately I didn't get around to implementing this proposal yet.
Various issues led to this, mainly lack of motivation due to DEX
appearing to be dead and apparent lack of interest in the derivatives
census by other folks. There are also more important issues to fix
with the census scripts before I get to implementing new features.

Only LMDE is a Debian derivative, the other Linux Mint distributions
are derived from Ubuntu or other distributions.

The derivatives census has LMDE already, so once the proposal has been
implemented they would be added.


I have no objection to LMDE being added manually to the existing
www.d.o/misc/children-distros page though.
