“Debian Derivatives Exchange project launched.
Stefano Zacchiroli and Matt Zimmerman launched a new project called the Debian dErivatives eXchange project (DEX). The main goal of this project is to reduce the technical differences between Debian and its derivatives. The first such group is the Ubuntu DEX Team, which aims to start integrating packages and changes available in Ubuntu back into Debian. A gNewSense DEX Team is also expected soon.”
