At Debian, we work to create a completeley free distribution. You
might want to take a look at our Social Contract and Free Software
Guidelines [1]. Basically, if you use Debian, you are free to create a
custom subdistribution, you are not even required to credit us for
that. You will find many useful links in our Wiki page on 'Custom
Debian distributions'.
