New Debian leader seeks more innovation within project

The new leader of the Debian GNU/Linux project, Lucas Nussbaum, plans to boost the amount of innovation that happens in the project itself, rather than just in its derivatives.
Nussbaum, an assistant professor of computer science from Universite de Lorraine, was elected as leader in April, defeating two other candidates. He has been involved with Debian since 2005.

"Generally, I have the impression that Debian has been categorized as the very solid foundation on which to build derivative distributions," he told iTWire in an interview.

"Many very cool things happen in the Debian ecosystem, but very often outside the Debian project itself, through derivatives. Being a solid basis for many innovative derivative distributions is great, but there's no reason why innovation shouldn't happen in Debian directly, and benefit everybody."

Nussbaum has had a busy time since being elected; the project made its stable release of version 7.0 on May 4 and he has had to cope with a number of other things, both personal and professional, as well.
Despite this, he was gracious enough to consent to what has become a regular feature in iTWire - a detailed interview with a new Debian leader. His detailed responses to iTWire's questions follow:

My comment at IT Wire:
I am not a techie, nor an administrator--I am just a user who came to Debian (from Windows--never really miss them) about ten (or more) years ago, because the package said that I wouldn't need another OS ever again ...

Only--sometimes it is difficult to fix problems, due to my lack of experience, being only strictly a user.

I would like to see some kind of Debian AI that one could connect to and have the machine checked and fixed; I think the state of computing science would be up to it?

Thanks, Hearthstone.
