The first mailinglist after debianfork.org
On the 18 October 2014 the Veteran Unix Admins have released a communication: Shall we fork Debian?
DNG is the name of the first mailinglist after the debianfork declaration.
This was probably the last popular news hit and public outcry before the final vote for the Ian Jackson resolution. One last vote is standing between Debian and the systemd switch.
Following up to the result of this GR on the 19th November, we maintained our promise and forked Debian.
