Don't get too proud: there is Russian distro ALT Linux (ALT is recursive
acronym for ALT Linux Team) that is based on Connectiva's apt-rpm port
and Mandrake Russian Edition, and these guys try to reproduce best parts
of Debian in their work: first of all, open developer community, and
coherent packaging, too. They borrow a lot of ideas from Debian, but
there are ideas to borrow from them, too, like their Sisyphus trunk
package repository that always remains in rolling-release state, and is
used as a base for different stable branches: Master is a stable
snapshot of whole Sisyphus, Junior is a one-disk desktop distro for
novices and for OEM installations, Castle is RSBAC-hardened server, etc.
