This isn't true at all. The vast majority of Helix GNOME people are
using Debian, including our QA guy. The Debian packages end up getting
tested much more than the other 8 or so distributions we support.

In most cases, we don't change packages at all. We just provide a
well-defined set of GNOME and GTK+ apps as a desktop environment. The
few things we do change are default settings that the upstream
maintainers want to keep the way they are currently.

We have also added several images for prettiness and branding

The major features that have gone into Helix GNOME have been moved
into the upstream sources, like the Menu Panel.
