Well, this is great news!
It seems I'm not the only one thinking about cross-distro development inside 
the Linux ecosystem.

I hope it opens everybody's eyes on the collaboration issue.

Let me suggest: could you agree to continue the conversation in FOSDEM? I 
guess, after your efficient meeting in Nuernberg, we could have a wider (and 
perhaps more noisy, too) chat in Brussels.
