>   audibility
> 
> - Automating building software for redistribution to minimize human
>   involvement, eg: bots that branch and build software, bots that

> 
> - Cross-distribution collaboration on common issues, eg: content
>   distribution, infrastructure, and documentation
> 
> - Growing distribution communities, eg: onboarding new users, helping
>   new contributors learn community values and technology,  increasing
>   contributor technical skills, recognizing and rewarding contribution
> 
> - Principals of Rolling Releases, Long Term Supported Releases (LTS),
>   Feature gated releases, and calendar releases
> 
> - Distribution construction, installation, deployment, packaging and
>   content management
> 
> - Balancing new code and active upstreams verus security updates, back
>   porting and minimization of user breaking changes
> 
> - Delivering architecture independent software universally across
>   architectures within the confines of distribution systems
> 
> - Effectively communicating the difference in experience across
