aptosid is made up of 2 words, firstly apto, which is a Latin word which means 'to fit, adapt, adjust, make ready, or fit'. The second word is sid and is the codename of Debian's unstable branch.
aptosid holds fast to the core values and social contract of Debian. (DFSG).
We aim to be 100% compatible with debian sid, and is at the forefront regarding the definition of a rolling distribution.
