@strypey There's a couple angles to this:
1) It has an aesthetic specifically tuned for elementary OS. I find this reduces the mental switches I have to do. (DONE)
2) Better integration with decentralized web technologies (IN-PROGRESS though well on my way). Addresses the adoption hurdles of ones not already integrated with AppCenter (and equivalent) integrations.
3) Low-maintenance and high-reward navigation aids (IN-PROGRESS).
Does this help?
You now have me trying to figure out how to excel for Trisquel.
One question: does Trisquel support the AppStream standard? Because while Odysseus will run perfectly fine without it, I do rely on it to ease adoption of, say, magnet: links.
@alcinnz AppStream? Good question, no idea. Trisquel is based off #Ubuntu, and has everything Ubuntu has minus the non-free stuff, and with #Mate instead of #Unity/ #GNOME. I'm still using Trisquel 7, which was based off 14.04, but most folks are already on 8, based off 16.04. The devs are now working on 8, which will be based off 18.04, so that would be the release to target for possible inclusion (at least in the repo).
@alcinnz again, good question. No idea. From what I understand the #Debian community are super keen to welcome new package maintainers, so I imagine there would be info on their website about who to email address, or what mailing list to join. I imagine there's a Debian IRC channel on FreeNode you could ask in?
