I've also been testing distro rebranding following Ubuntu's guidelines for derivative distros with no issues noticed.
I've also upgraded all packages that have been updated in xenial LTS past MPPCR's version, with no issues noticed.

Hi Casey,

Impressive! :-) Many thanks for testing the RC5! :-) I appreciate it very much! :-)

Which files have you modified for the rebranding?

Thanks,
Christian

Hi Christian,

The files I modified and their contents:

/etc/issue.net
Code: Select all
MATE PowerPC Remix

/etc/issue
Code: Select all
MATE PowerPC Remix /n /l

/etc/lsb-release
Code: Select all
DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=17.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=zesty
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="MATE PowerPC Remix"

/usr/lib/os-release
Code: Select all
NAME="MATE PowerPC Remix"
VERSION="0.7"
ID=ubuntu
ID_LIKE=debian
PRETTY_NAME="MATE PowerPC Remix"
VERSION_ID="17.04"
HOME_URL="https://www.ubuntu.com/"
SUPPORT_URL="https://help.ubuntu.com/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/"
PRIVACY_POLICY_URL="https://www.ubuntu.com/legal/terms-and-policies/privacy-policy"
VERSION_CODENAME=zesty
UBUNTU_CODENAME=zesty


You should be ok to change anything that isn't labelled "ID".

To change the menu logo you could either download a theme from a Debian repo, or change the "start-here.svg" and "distributor-logo.svg" icons located in /usr/share/icons/Ambiant-MATE/apps/22
