On his blog, Vincent Untz reflects
on the recently completed cross-distribution App Installer meeting
, which by his and others' accounts was definitely a success. In the posting, he also spends some time talking about the need for more cross-distribution collaboration. "To be honest, since I started working on openSUSE, I've kept wondering why all distributions duplicate so much work. Sometimes, there is a good reason, like a radically different technical approach. But sometimes, it looks like we're going different ways just for the sake of doing something ourselves. We should fix this. Cross-distro collaboration is not the way we usually do things, and I believe we're wrong most of the time. Cross-distro collaboration is a cultural shift for us. But it's very well needed.
