Following time-honored tradition, “DCC” is now a recursive acronym that stands for “DCC Common Core”. Importantly, “DCC” no longer stands for “Debian Common Core”, and we’ve updated the FAQ accordingly. If you see further references to “Debian Common Core” in the press, feel free to send them a link to this page or ask them to contact me.
Why are we doing this? The DCC is a truly important initiative for Debian, and we don’t want continued controversy over what we chose to call it to overshadow the real message of the DCC, namely that Debian is ready for enterprise use.
In related news, we’re in the process of trying to make the DCC (or at least the technical aspects of it) an official Debian subproject—see the debian-enterprise Alioth project if you’re interested in Debian in the enterprise and want to get involved.
