Debian dErivatives eXchange (DEX) BoF

... and other initiatives to improve the collaboration with derivative distributions

Various initiatives have been recently started to improve the collaboration among Debian and its derivatives. Some examples are the "Derivatives Front Desk" (a discussion place for representatives of Debian and derivatives), the Debian dErivatives eXchange program (a program to coordinated focused cross-distro collaboration initiatives to merge related derivatives patches into Debian proper), and the derivatives census.

This BoF will first present a retrospective of the above initiatives and attempt a brief review of how they went.

Then, the BoF will move to an open discussion among participants about how (and if) to continue the above initiatives, gathering new participants into them, as well as brainstorming about new initiatives that we can devise to improve both Debian and all its derivatives.

Participants from Debian are welcome; participants from derivatives are very welcome!
