16.2. Masa depan Debian

In addition to these internal developments, one can reasonably expect new Debian-based distributions to come to light, as many tools keep simplifying this task. New specialized subprojects will also be started, in order to widen Debian's reach to new horizons.
Komunitas pengguna Debian akan meningkat, dan kontributor baru akan bergabung dengan proyek... termasuk, mungkin, Anda!
There are recurring discussions about how the software ecosystem is evolving, towards applications shipped within containers, where Debian packages have no added value, or with language-specific package managers (e.g. pip for Python, npm for JavaScript, etc.), which are rendering dpkg and apt obsolete. Facing those threats, I am convinced that Debian developers will find ways to embrace those evolutions and to continue to provide value to users.
Terlepas dari usia tua dan ukurannya yang terhormat, Debian terus tumbuh ke segala arah (yang kadang-kadang tak terduga). Kontributor yang penuh dengan ide, dan diskusi pada milis pengembangan, bahkan ketika mereka tampak seperti bertengkar, terus meningkatkan momentum. Debian kadang-kadang dibandingkan dengan sebuah lubang hitam, dengan kepadatan yang sedemikian sehingga proyek perangkat lunak bebas baru apapun menjadi tertarik.
Beyond the apparent satisfaction of most Debian users, a deep trend is becoming more and more indisputable: people are increasingly realizing that collaborating, rather than working alone in their corner, leads to better results for everyone. Such is the rationale used by distributions merging into Debian by way of subprojects.
Maka proyek Debian tidak terancam oleh kepunahan…
