I think ultimately its going to be up to the makers of the distro to create a port for the r-pi rather than the other way around.
From a logistical stand point, the r-pi team has already put in a lot of hard work making sure that a couple of distros work with the r-pi (not that they made them compatible in the first, place, but that they found an ARMv6 compliant distro and made sure it worked). From that point on, they have a distro they can claim to officially \"support\", going out of their way to try and get each and every distro one of us end-users desires in an increasingly demanding task!
I mean, it\'s not like people went to Intel and said \"make your processor apple compliant!\" (well, they probably did, but Intel didn\'t do it
) but rather apple said, \"Okay we\'re going to make our OS Intel compliant.\"
Which is the right and appropriate way for things to work, the OS (and peripherals) must make themselves compliant with the heart of the computer (the processor)
It\'s not that the distro you\'re suggesting is bad or redundant, it\'s just not reasonable for us to want the r-pi team to do all the foot work If you really want that distro than by all means get on the distro\'s forums, ask for an ARMv6 version of the distro, or make the distro ARMv6 compatible yourself.
