I'm a SUSE refugee (for reasons that should be obvious) and yesterday 
installed Kubuntu Dapper after failing with Debian due to it not picking up 
my hard drives.

Then I noticed the gNewSense link at  Wow, I'm very, very interested 
in gNewSense and I've downloaded the ISO, but I have some questions.

I am a KDE user and since gNewSense is based upon Ubuntu, does it still 
incorporate the kubuntu-desktop (or similar) settings so I can install my 
favourite desktop?

I noticed this in Karl Goetz's email yesterday.

"DeltaD (gNS 1.0) is binary compatible with Dapper (6.06). This wont 
necessarily continue."

Does this mean that there's a possibility of doing a dist-upgrade between 
Dapper and gNewSense?  I'm not asking for a guarantee that it would work, 
just a sense that it may be possible.

I may just give it a try anyway, what are the repository settings for 
sources.list ?

Lastly, is there a get involved or how to help section planned in the Wiki?

That's all for now, this looks like a great project,

Andrew :-)
