Joining the Debian Community

Expats, welcome

Ubuntu

Developer resources

  • Debian derivatives front-desk

  • Utnubu (inactive) is Ubuntu spelled backwards. One of Ubuntu's activities is frequently redistributing packages originally from Debian to Ubuntu's users. Utnubu was about the reverse, copying packages from Ubuntu to Debian.
