I have a patch against the children-distros.wml page prepared
(attached) and ready to commit to the CVS repo. - I am not familiar
with the procedures for adding a new distro to that list though - is
anything more required?

I would very much appreciate if someone examined the patch -
the text is taken from distrowatch, I got it from there since the text
in a whole lot of other places still reference Ubuntu as a
base of gnewsense.
