Where he says he did it all himself, it is true in the sense that nobody
helped him to use the tools provided that allow one to create his own
distribution. Did he take the pains of removing any credits from
licensing/copyright/legal material? Did he specifically say he did it
But I suppose some bad faith has been shown in his failure to be upfront
about his distro being based on Ubuntu work. Still, it would appear that
he did put in a bit of work to get a working environment save for
infrastructure for supporting his distro.
