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,

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
