Upstream first

From Apertis
Jump to: navigation, search

Apertis is a fully open source GNU/LInux distribution that carries a lot of components for which it is not the upstream. The goal of upstream first is to mimimize the amount of deviation and fragmentation between Apertis components and their upstreams.

Deviation tends to duplicate work and adds a burden on the Apertis developers when it comes to testing and updating to newer versions of upstream components. Also, as the success of Apertis relies on the success of open source in general to accommodate new use cases, it is actively harmful for Apertis to not do its part in moving the state of the art forward.
