The idea behind the Freely Project's Libre Software Solution Stack was
to provide a complete turn-key solution that churches could get up and
running with in fairly short order.  The LS3 is exactly the kind of
metapackage you're referring to.  IMO, there should be several
distro-specific implementations.  However, we need to start *somewhere*.
Thus Ubuntu was made the starting point for Freely, with the idea that
people could come along and develop the appropriate implementations for
other distros later.

Ichthux, I believe, was to be a Custom Debian distro, but seems to have
become a custom Ubuntu distro.  I will eventually change the LS3 spec to
use Ichthux and this new distro.  That's been part of my plan all along
- just waiting for Raphael here to get things together. ;-)
