Yes, it does come from LaetOS but it's now developed by people who are
working at MandrakeSoft. They're working on this project for the graphical
install of Mandrake (a Redhat based distribution) and in particular the
Lothar project I think. But there have been rumors about a Debian based
distribution done by MandrakeSoft ...

Ok, I'm a french developer who followed LaetOS at the very beginning so I
subscribed again and asked about a possible cooperation, LaetOS is not
very active but there may be skilled people willing to help on the Debian
boot disk in order to use them for LaetOS, i've juste sent a message to
laet-devel. I'll keep you informed of the reactions if any.
