In my professional area some of the most advanced software tools are incredibly hard to install, build, and configure even for the teams who create the tools, let alone for less technical end users.
To reduce the high "barrier to entry" this creates for many less technical peers, I have created a FOSS distribution of Ubuntu 15 with the tools pre-built and configured.
However, I have never authored and distributed a distribution before. I fear that if I distribute it, especially on a popular site like DistroWatch, that I'll soon be in over my head with software components needing updates, requests for additional tools, etc.
I wonder if there's a way to get an idea of exactly what to expect, to streamline the process of continually updating software components (and checking for resulting broken configuration)?
Is this a 1-person job, or do I need a team? Is there an established platform for recruiting contributors?
