[[!tag draft]]
Long ago, in days of yore, we assumed that any software worth having would be
-packaged by the operating system we used. [Debian][] with its enormous pile of
-software (78 gigabytes of source last time I looked) looked to basically
-contain every piece of free software ever. However as more and more people
-have come to Linux-based and BSD-based systems, and the proliferation of
-*NIX-based systems has become even more diverse, it has become harder and
-harder to ensure that everyone has access to all of the software they might
-choose to use.

Couple that with the rapid development of new projects, who clearly want to get
users involved well before the next release cycle of a Linux-based distribution
