Of course I have :)

Puppy is independent - http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=Puppy
So, it seems he is trying to do what you just described :)

You mean team up with him?

You mean lighter than LXDE not Lubuntu because Lubuntu is a system not DE
nor WM :)

I think I have heard about that :)

But, I am not trying to create a spin of Lubuntu or something, this is
something different and has different path and vision. Basically, this
project suppose to be lighter than Lubuntu and simpler :) also, it should
be LTS, unlike Lubuntu 12.04 which is outdated already.

I didn't like the interface when I checked it last time. For me, I like
SliTaz better.
