Linux distributions are often based on Debian software, and these forks tends to vanish into thin air, when the creative phase and possibly the funding disappears. Maintaining a distro is not as fun as designing one.

Let’s save some distributions from an early death! Part of our vision is for blends to be easy to customize and for the customizations to be easily copied and maintained. We wish for all customization to happen in Debian, thus making forking obsolete.

The Debian Design Team would like to present a draft on how this goal may be obtained, and discuss how this idea might be implemented in Debian distributions.
