Yes. Not that I can invest lots of time to such a project but I believe
we really need to offer something at that level.

I suggest however that we try to be heavily involved in MeeGo and not only
to do our stuff nearby. That might mean using their repositories and
stuff like that.

The Debian Mobile part could be mostly marketing and branding while
technical work should be done within MeeGo if this appears to be possible
(we'll have to watch out how they will manage external contributions and
so on).

We could try to create a "Debian Variant" working group following
