Debian for Humans

Tanglu is a project to provide an easily installable and usable Debian operating system, even for non-technical "device" users. And we want to provide time-based releases of the latest upstream software.

In our opinion, developers and users have the same need here. Both like a polished system that “just works”.

Goals

The project aims at developing the necessary usability improvements within the debian project.

To realize this, the project works on a Debian Blend to implement the desired configuration improvements, and a derivative showcase distribution to release updated package versions.

The goals of the Blend include:

The Blend makes the simplified configuration options available in all Debian branches. As such - Tanglu users are Debian users - and right at home participating in the Debian user communities all over the world.

Tanglu's derivative distribution aims at providing up-to-date working solutions for the users. The goals include:

  • Regular time-based releases of newer working package versions from DebianTesting.

  • A tanglu NEW queue that allows Debian developers to upload new package versions during Debian freezes.
  • Easy-to-use and tailored live- and install-media.

The derivative distribution makes the Tanglu features available, even before our features or repositories have become an official part of the debian project.

The overall vision is to have the Tanglu release used together with DebianStable, where DebianStable can run on servers and the Tanglu releases provide newer packages for end-user devices, even while DebianTesting is undergoing a freeze.

In short, you can think of Tanglu as a community-maintained Ubuntu.

For more details, see initial ideas and the original tanglu announcement.

Status

The Tanglu distribution was started in april 2013 by setting up www.tanglu.org repositories and beginning work on a Live CD.

Ideas for developments

  • Make rich descriptions for popular applications available right in the package manager. (For example, use descripions from communitity maintained wikis such as wiki.ubuntuusers.de.)
