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

perhaps more noisy, too) chat in Brussels.
