Re: Debian GNU/BSD Project Goals

I have some technical questions:

>   Kernel is NetBSD.

How big are the differences between FreeBSD and NetBSD?
Could Debian/BSD support both kernels (... in a later version)?

>   Libc is NetBSD's unless/until somebody ports GNU libc; then maybe both.

How dependant are common programs on the BSD/Linux architecture?
It would be great, if packages (not needing any low-level calls) could be
kernel-independant (so we end up with binary-all, binary-i386,
binary-lin386, binary-bsd386)
I don't think this will work with NetBSD's libc, but if there were
gnu libc for NetBSD - could binaries be compatible?

Off-topic: how much speed gain could be achived by binary-i686?

>   Kernel-related utilities (ifconfig mount etc.) are from NetBSD.

there's no way around that ;)
But i would prefer if these utilities would be paramter-compatible with
the Linux one's. (i'd like some "great BSD+Linux unification";)

>   File system layout is Debian/FHS.

The thing i think is the most important thing.
