LXer: Ubuntu is reducing Debian to a supermarket of components

Published at LXer:

I fear Debian could be left with mostly developers who are happily motivated with just packaging another piece of software. While there's nothing wrong with feeling that way and working on that basis, we don't want to lose the people who want to work on things that cut across sets of packages, like speeding up the boot time, improving the installation experience, making the distribution attractive for speakers of $language, making sure Debian supports as much hardware as best it can, porting Debian to interesting new architectures, integrating Xen and SE Linux with Debian, making a useful default desktop install, etc. [Ugliest blog evar, but makes some interesting points]
