Wouldn't it be better to use Debian for the first start?
- Az Martinez said it does not need any adoption on the distro-side
- Az Risto said neiter SHR-U nor SHR-T would -at the moment- be appropriate 
for the purpose of the showroom

I believe using Debian for the basic implementation of the showroom would cut 
down the amount of work a bit. And since I don't expect the showroom to be 
working perfectly from the first start (it's software) it might be better to 
work on a distro that is not evolving as fast as SHR (i think). I mean, data 
(urls, version numbers, etc.) that has been put into the showrooms database 
for testing yesterday is most likely still valid tomorrow - if it's about
