I didn't say they were going to get a Debian base. What the guy told me
was that they didn't really like rpm and were impressed by dpkg, and
would like to switch if there was a way to convert the rpm database into
a dpkg format. That is something different, although still very nice.
It could be the start of something more, but we'll just have to wait and
see where it goes.
