My understanding is that we do not currently consider Chrubuntu to be an unofficial derivative (or even a separate derivative at all), and that the current consensus is not to close questions as off-topic for being about a problem on a Chrubuntu system. At least provided that the problem isn't about issues arising from an unofficially supported Ubuntu installation method.
- chrubuntu questions - on-topic or off-topic?
See the overwhelmingly more upvoted answer there, seeming to reflect community consensus.
However, I've noticed this recently closed question--which is not about any method of installing Ubuntu on a Chromebook, official or otherwise--where the comments appear to indicate it was closed because the close-voters considered Chrubuntu to be a separate, unofficial distribution:
Something ought to be fixed in this situation, but I'm not sure what.
- If Chrubuntu is not a separate and unofficial derivative and that's really why that question is closed, it should be reopened. And its comments should be cleaned up.
- If I'm missing something and Chrubuntu is (or sometimes is??) a separate and unofficial derivative, then we should have an updated answer on that meta question. If we're keeping some new Chrubuntu questions open and closing others (and considering that to be appropriate), that should also be explained. And possibly some comments should be cleaned up.
- If that question really should remain closed, but for reasons unrelated to it being about a "Chrubuntu" system, then that should be explained, especially to the OP. And comments should definitely be cleaned up. (I haven't seen another reason to think it should be closed, though.)
I suspect that inadequate communication about the status of "Chrubuntu" may have caused a problem in numerous questions, which might need addressing. But I also suspect I may not know the whole story, having returned from being (mostly) inactive on the site for an extended time. So I'm focusing on this one specific Chrubuntu-related question, rather than trying to figure out anything about all of them.
What should be done with that particular Minecraft question? What is the status of "Chrubuntu"? Please advise.
