Debian Derivatives BoF Session.

A Debian derivative is a distribution that is based on the work done in Debian but has its own identity, goals and audience and is created by an entity that is independent from Debian. Derivatives modify Debian to achieve the goals they set for themselves.

DebConf usually also has people contributing to multiple Debian Derivatives. This BoF session would be an opportunity for these distro communities to share/collaborate/discuss the issues and opportunities on Debian derivatives development. Also it will give an opportunity to Debian derivatives team to discuss on how Debian and derivatives better collaborate with each other more inclusively.
