Re: Devs work items for 16.04


Hi Nio,

I cannot over state how much I want to see OBI become an adopted system.
You have worked tirelessly on it and in my humble opinion not only does it
work better and more consistently than others, it has fantastic support

@Julien, I know that things are now in flux as to how ubuntu and debian
repos will work, but can you look to have this system accepted into the
debian repos so we can offer it as a real alternative to the existing "will
not work with this, will not work with that" systems that are currently on
the 'approved' list.
