Looking at the front page, it looks like the Foundation is spilling the beans that future official images from the Raspberry Pi foundation will be based on Raspbian. The first image should be out soon and will essentially be a close work-alike clone of the Debian Wheezy armel image that was released by the Foundation a few weeks ago. Of course, the Raspbian based version will have all the hard float and armv6 instruction goodness that we've come to enjoy with Raspbian.
Given that this project only started in earnest in the beginning of March, we've come a long way and I consider it a great honor that the Foundation is choosing to use Raspbian for their official images for the Raspberry Pi. Hopefully we'll be able to continue to improve Raspbian in the coming months and this honor will continue indefinitely in the future.
Most of all, I want to thank Peter Green (aka Plugwash) who brought to this project a wealth of Debian knowledge and experience. Without his help and advice, I almost certainly would have been lost in the weeds. Also, thank you to everyone in this forum and the IRC channel for your support, encouragement and suggestions that have played an important role in improving Raspbian. Finally, a big thank you to the Debian Project. Until Raspbian, I was just a happy user of Debian for nearly 10 years. Although Raspbian is an unofficial port of Debian, I hope that it pays proper homage to the spirit and tradition of Debian as a free operating system. With some good luck, Raspbian will hopefully expose tens of thousands or more of new Linux users to Debian.
Unfortunately, the Foundation's SPAM blocker for some reason doesn't like me today and I can't respond to questions in the blog itself. In any case, I expect a whole lot more people to be making their ways to the Raspbian forum over the next few days and weeks. Welcome everyone...
