"MEPIS, one of the more popular Debian-derived distributions,
may be moving in a new direction soon. MEPIS founder Warren
Woodford is considering building future MEPIS releases from Ubuntu
sources rather than from Debian.
"SimplyMEPIS 3.4-3, which is scheduled for release today, has
been quite a challenge to build, according to Woodford. 'It's
taking up all my time, fighting the Etch pool.... We've had a lot
of trouble, because the Debian community has become so active, it's
been difficult to get this out, so I'm looking at alternatives to
getting out stable releases...'"
