Some of them:

- Try to be in bleeding edge. (2.3.X libc)
- Some of the packages is fully resplitted (for example X).
- Some package compiled with another options.
- Some file placed another location. (for example starting scripts)
- {post,pre}{inst,remove} scripst are removed.
- Everything try to be autoconfigured (detect hardware, etc.)

IIRC uhu-maintainers get only the deb format from debian, they do
everything from scratch.
