Better communication to downstream projects/forks
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

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:

  1. Peppermint OS
  2. LXLE

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:

  1. When we change something that could break something they're doing, they should have a heads up.
  2. 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.

Ideas are welcome, but having some sort of downstream mailing list or email list that we keep internally informing people of new, big things might help too. This is just a brain dump, since I'll be away for a few days, but @wxl et. al, ideas are welcome. 😄
