Debian Fork coming?

November 26, 2014 — BarryK
In my previous blog post I wrote about a proposed Quirky LTS:

A couple of days ago, I grumbled about systemd:

It is not certain that it will happen yet, but some Debian developers look to be serious about forking Debian:
http://debianfork.org/

...they are seeking donations.

If that actually does happen, I will be very pleased, and there is a high likelihood that I will build a Quirky from their DEB packages.

The fork of Debian now has a name, Devuan, which is pronounced "DevOne".

New site:
