Ubuntu Helps Debian Linux DEX
Page 1 of 1
Debian is the 'parent' distro to many 'children' derivative distros, including Ubuntu. Sometimes those derivatives give back to the upstream, but it's not always easy.
A new effort called DEX is aiming to improve how derivative bits are merged upstream.
"DEX is all about action: merging patches, fixing bugs, crunching data, whatever is necessary to get changes from derivatives into Debian proper," Ubuntu CTO Matt Zimmerman wrote in a blog post. "DEX is a joint task force where developers from Debian and its derivatives work together on this common goal."
It's a good idea, but it kinda/sorta sounds familiar to me.
So why does Zimmerman/Ubuntu think that DEX can succeed where the DCCA failed?
