I was explaining to a user why their question is off topic (not about Ubuntu or official derivatives).
Their reply was the following.
Then why is there a "custom-distributions" tag?
So why is there? To me this seems to just make people think they can ask about any modified version of Ubuntu, whereas in the help centre it says
Using and administering official Ubuntu flavors including: Edubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, Kubuntu, Ubuntu Kylin, Lubuntu, Mythbuntu, Ubuntu Studio, Xubuntu and Ubuntu Touch.
Linux Mint, Backtrack, Gnome-Remix (prior to 13.04) and other Linux distributions (try our friends at Unix & Linux Stack Exchange).
Another point is that it doesn't actually have a tag wiki - barely even an excerpt. It just says what a custom distribution is:
A custom Distribution is a custom-built version of Ubuntu.
And this (to me) is off topic, because it is not an official Ubuntu flavour. I would say it is a more of another Linux distribution...
Am I right here, or should I retract my vote? Either way (weather it is on or off topic) it is not a good question.
