Debian Etch and Ubuntu Feisty: a comparison

If Ubuntu is based on Testing or is a snapshot of Debian unstable then it should be fine not to actually provide any software other then what is in Ubuntu main and then just have people pull directly from Debian repositories. More here

I do NOT see any reason, other then people’s hangups and personal politics, why (with work and coordination) the Debian Tasksel that you won’t be able to pick ‘Ubuntu Desktop’ as a installer option. I also think that instead of having the ‘universe’ and ‘multiverse’ users could just point at ‘deb http://ftp.debian.org/’ for their extra package mirrors.
