Debian and its clones "Debian is the 'mother' distro to many 'children' derivative distros, including Ubuntu. Sometimes those derivatives give back to the upstream, but it's not always easy. A new effort called DEX is aiming to improve how derivative bits are merged upstream."

Its really no worse than getting "upstream" to accept Debian's Way of thinking and policy from the DFSG.

I think Debian will carry on, with or without DEX/Ubuntu and take the pieces it sees that are beneficial to Debian. *JUST* like the way it is now.

The only thing I can really see this doing is getting the hollering out of the way more quickly.
