Sardine is indeed a Maemo distribution.

Sardine development is currently different from Maemo development
in the sense that it is about developing a distribution day by day which
is not the way Maemo as a whole is developed - though it will hopefully
be one day.
Most of what is currently discussed in sardine-developers is
about the distro packaging, build system and infrastructure.
That discussion benefits from a separate focused discussion list.
We've been encouraging our developers to engage in this
discussion in maemo-developers, rather than internally at Nokia,
but it never really took off until this separate list was created.
Nothing prevents us from folding sardine-developers into
maemo-developers one day though. Personally, I see that happening
as we extend sardine to cover the whole Maemo scope and sardine
becomes the window towards the upcoming Maemo release.
