Utnubu Team Founded - Merging Ubuntu changes to Debian GNU / Linux

Utnubu stands for doing what Ubuntu does, just the other way around: We want to take the things Ubuntu does and that are missing in Debian GNU / Linux, and - where applicable - put them in Debian GNU / Linux.

Hi everyone,
I invite everyone interested to join the Utnubu Team. Utnubu stands for doing what Ubuntu does, just the other way around: We want to take the things Ubuntu does and that are missing in Debian, and - where appliciable - put them in Debian.
This should be achieved using (at least) the following methods:
  • Having a look at the patches that Ubuntu publishes, see if they are suitable for Debian and then contact the Debian Maintainer to see if and how these can be integrated.
  • Contacting Ubuntu developers that upload directly to universe, if they don't want to upload to Debian, too; this includes sponsoring. Note that I do not plan to pull developers from Ubuntu, they should instead form their package for both distributions.
  • If this is not possible or feasable, take Ubuntu-only packages, adjust them to Debian and upload them ourselves.
(Personally, I'd like to concentrate on point 2 and 3, so another reason for you to join)
I have set up the alioth project utnubu, as well as the mailing lists Utnubu-discuss for general in-group discussion, as well as utnubu-maintainers for the maintainer field of our possible packages.
A list of binary package in universe, but not in Debian, is assembled on Utnubu team page.
Thanks for your attention, and looking forward to working with you,
Joachim Breitner
