I haven't said Debian developers will come and save the world ! I've
only said they will certainly give some help.

For RH, you've probably right, but you're forgeting some things...
What means "RedHat compatibles" ?? I only know "Linux compatible", "POSIX
compatible", "Unix98 compatible", and things like that but I've never
heard "RedHat compatible", "Debian compatible" nor "SuSE compatible".
This point of vue is very dangerous, one program must run on all distro,
one package must be installable on all distro (with alien).
When I wanna install a .rpm, I use alien and then I can install it.
I think we shouldn't say "RedHat isn't the best but it's the more used, so 
we use RedHat", but "We need a base for a user friendly distro, there
isn't any user-friendly distro, so what is the best base ?", and we must
take care to be able to install *ALL* packages format on this distro
(.rpm, .deb, .spl).

I don't want to convert you, I not here for that. I'm here only to
discuss, to convince.
You think/do what you want, my mails was not only for you but for the
whole list.
I haven't said Indy aren't right, I've only said we (LætOS) are thinking
Debian is the best base.
If you consider I want to convert you, or I'm uninterresting, don't
answer, you're not forced...

So, to all : what do you think about ?

Thanks for your attention.
