Hai Charlie (and the rest),
I think something went wrong with your reply so I forwarded to everyone
@Scott K: I think it's a problem with using a lot of terms side-by-side and
mixing things up even. As you can see, the page  Ubuntu uses is called
Derivatives. However on that same page the officially recognized once are
suddenly called flavor. In my humble opinion it's a more friendly term to
use, but we should get some (dare I say it?) Unity in our naming scheme.
It might have been my mistake, because the information  given by Kate
apparently also talked about Flavors. But it's important everyone knows what
the correct term is/should be.
I hope this clears up some of the mess (originally created to ask for help
on getting links to the meeting minutes).
I can see how there is some confusion here. I see them as:
* Favors - community development distributions based on Ubuntu, but
part of the Ubuntu project (e.g. Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Edubuntu).
* Derivatives - any other project based on Ubuntu but not part of the
Ubuntu project (e.g. Mint).
I think we should get some clarity on this and communicate this
outwards. Kate (CCed) - is this something can help with?
