em. at least for CDD's this is false, CDD-releases build on Debian releases 
as the only differences between a CDD and Debian are:
- the initial set of installed packages
- the default configuration of those packages
(- some additions/changes not _yet_ added/merged back into Debian proper)

CDD's are currently based on Debian-stable (which is the reason Skoleinux, 
for example. is still using kde 2.2), and eagerly anticipating the release 
of Sarge
