Thanks for summarizing, Dominique.

As I said in a recent blog entry [1], even though we have re-branded a
bit to give a better focus to the tools side of things, we're not
abandoning the distribution issues.  When we started the project we
thought it could be a place for both distribution collaboration *and*
tools.  As there's presently more interest in the tools side of things,
we thought emphasizing that aspect of the project would help.  We
originally wanted the project to be the "Linux Distros/Linux Tools"
project but that was too long :)

I'm looking forward to this.

We've really got some good momentum going now and I am excited to keep
it up and see what we can accomplish.
