please help to support Chinese local operating system

The local operating system in China is mainly based on the secondary development of linux, such as the operating systems of deepin and NeoKylin, which need to support the installation of C:D Linux on these operating systems.

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

we have many deepin and NeoKylin operating systems, and CDs cannot be installed at present. If these operating systems can be supported, we can use more C:D

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM. I have reviewed it with my team thoroughly. Unfortunately we have not seen enough interest in this request from the market to assign resources to port Connect:Direct to Deeping or NeoKylin. Because of that I must decline this request at this time. Thank you for using the enhancement request tool and please don't hesitate to submit other ideas that you'd like us to consider.
