Bug Description

Hi,

after being able to create a distroseries for Gentoo Linux (10.0) I noticed that it derives from Ubuntu Breezy, which is not true. Could it be set to be stand-alone? Thanks.

can a definitive "Yes it can be fixed and here's the SQL" be provided?

The vocabulary can be modified to accept None, or we can admit that the distroseries is designed to Ubuntu.

We're not going to allow None with the derivation work as part of changing the semantics of this field.
