Debian Pure Blends
A Debian Pure Blend (in short Blend if used in clearly Debian internal context)
is a subset of Debian that is configured to
support a particular target group out-of-the-box. The goal is to provide
solutions for Special Interest Groups inside Debian.
The concept was formerly known as Custom Debian Distributions.
For a very short introduction see the Wiki page.
A comprehensive overview is given in the article covering
Debian Pure Blends.
People who are interested in development of Debian Pure Blends
should visit the project page on Alioth.
