Chris Lamb here, Debian Project Leader. As a bit of background, I've been around the "startup" scene on and off, even participating in YCombinator during S12. I have a few side projects here and there and I also do a lot of full-stack web development using Python/Django.
I'm very much interested in soliciting your feedback and feature requests for the Debian 10 ("buster") development cycle which opens up tomorrow after the release of "stretch" today. This is obviously a shameless appropriation of Ubuntu's post a few months ago and some requests would definitely overlap but I feel we could get some interesting replies nonetheless.
Please include in your replies the following bullets:
- HEADLINE: 1-line description of the request
- DESCRIPTION: A lengthier description of the feature. Bonus points for constructive criticism...
- DISTRIBUTION: (Optional) [stable, testing, unstable, or even a Debian deriviative]
- ROLE/AFFILIATION: (Optional, your job role and affiliation)
We would be exteremely interested in your feedback! Everything is fair game -- kernel, security, community, default settings, architectures, init systems (!), desktop, Docker, documentation, default packages, cloud images, etc. etc.. Feel free to comment even if you are using a Debian derivative such as Ubuntu, Mint, etc. too.
