(Pasting the text of the wiki page
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Webmaster/ChildrenDistros for reference)

An alphabetical list of distributions based in Debian is maintained in the page

The Children Distros Debian page is filled with many stale entries that need to
be updated in order to keep the listing both relevant and current, and new
items should be added when new children distros are developed.

On the other hand, a Derivatives/Census is maintained in the wiki (with
different purpose), so ideally the efforts to keep any of both lists updated
should help to improve the other list.

Proposed workflow

0.- Have a look at the source code of the children-distros page:


For each children distro, name and description are provided, and after that,
some comments lines should be present or added with the following info:

Date added: YYYY-MM-DD
Last reviewed: YYYY-MM-DD
1.- Pick a distro for which those comment lines are not present or the "Last
reviewed" date is more than one year ago.

2.- Review the name, description and links of the distro, and update the text
if necessary. Please check that links are not broken and try to provide
information from a source of the original distro itself, if possible (if not,
provide external links).

3.- With the information retrieved, write an update for the paragraph of the
children distro (or write a new paragraph for a new distro to be included, in
its place, in alphabetical order). For updates, at least the line "Last
reviewed:" should be added/changed with the current date.

4.- Send a patch (or the info itself) to the corresponding bug report (linked
in Teams/Webmaster).

5.- Check the corresponding information about the distro in Derivatives/Census
with the information that you gathered, and provide the corresponding updates
to the Census wiki page, if needed.

Note: We would like to thank your contributions! If you want to be listed in
https://contributors.debian.org/ , register an account in Alioth, the Debian
forge, related to the email you use for sending the patch or the wiki edition.
