The DCCA distribution is a mixture of packages from Sarge plus some
backports. In all cases, the Maintainer: field appears to be the same as
in Debian. Several derived distributions (gnuLinEx, Knoppix, Mepis,
Linspire, Progency, Sun-Wah, UserLinux (ha ha ha) and Xandros) are
supposed to be using these packages in an unmodified form, as I
understand it.
