Maybe related resp helping:
http://wiki.maemo.org/Why_the_closed_packages (NB that's not my POV, usual 
disclaimers apply), and

The maemo fremantle porting project is not targeted at creating a fork or new 
release of maemo OS, but strictly to keep compatibility from N900 to Neo900 so 
users can ideally restore a backup from their old N900 to their new Neo900 and 
the device acts exactly like user got used to. Also we don't plan to recompile 
the repositories with all the applications, and for the much needed core apps 
like dialer we even can't do that since they are closed.

However you're free to run any distro you like on GTA04 and GTA04-N900 aka 
Neo900, just the maemo community fremantle porting task force will not bother 
about "rebasing on debian" or whatever, the goals of that task force are 
clearly defined.
