I'm curious as to why you decided to develop an Ubuntu fork of Debian
GNU/kFreeBSD. Was it for the Ubuntu brand name? Ubuntu's packaging
universe? Just because Ubuntu?

Since GNU/kBSD distributions aren't exactly targeted at beginners but
rather people who explicitly want to a) have the benefit of a GNU
userland and BSD kernel or b) use a BSD kernel in freedom, why put such
a specialised use-case distribution under the umbrella of Ubuntu?

Wouldn't it have better to focus on developing Debian GNU/kFreeBSD,
which could do with the extra attention/work?

Just curious. What was the rationale?
