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."

I suspect the dev egos from both camps will cause DEX to fail in record time.

I think the hollering will be deafening. It'll make the fights happen in record time. Whether or not it'll be a success or failure, will be either a full-on failure in record time or it'll take many years to fully realize its possibility.

My biggest concern is Shuttleworth and his time-line for things to be a success... and pulling out of DEX before anything really could be known.
