Several projects are based off of Lubuntu and either do respinning of things, tweaking of things, or complete overhauls. The two I know of right now are the following:
- Peppermint OS
As the old saying goes, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em", and these spins exist to target a specific userbase. We should have very good communication with our downstreams for a couple of reasons:
- When we change something that could break something they're doing, they should have a heads up.
- They know what we're doing and can help contribute as much as possible upstream to us.
We should make life easier for others, not harder.
