I wouldn't be surprised if they would come with Debian as their
base... Conectiva seems to want to be closer to Debian these
days... they have done apt-rpm, are following some of the Debian
policies, using task-* packages, modifying their init system...

Or they'll have a rpm'ed version of Debian... it would make sense
for them to have a slightly modified debconf, and some other
Debian stuff like menu system, etc

Let's wait and see... it seems like they'll announce their purposes
tomorrow morning (for us brazilians, at least)

For portuguese-speaking people, there are news about this on
