Re: New Debian Leader Seeks More Innovation Within Project

Yes - it currently looks boring but there's nothing in the social contract about that says that drabness is a core Debian value.

I'm not saying all people running Mint should be running Debian but where Debian can regain Mint and Ubuntu users, it's better for Debian because it brings these people more into the project. Ubuntu and Mint are essential commercial in nature but benefiting from a Debian whose strength comes at least in part from another set of values.

Re: New Debian Leader Seeks More Innovation Within Project

Ah but we're talking about what can be, not the way things are. My point is that with a change of communication and marketing (in the broad sense) strategy, Debian can stay as it is and be more accessible.

Which was my point out Linuxbbq style remixes. Imagine like your config as a limited edition distro. That's all. So people could see that the ugly base is just a starting point.

Anyway, this is becoming pub talk. The best way to influence Debian is to get involved.
