Just a little query. I moved from sidux to aptosid but I notice that /etc/default/distro still says that I have a sidux distro. Is the protocol to leave this indicating the original installation or to change it to the new distro? I guess the former but I'm curious to know.

Yes, this file is used by the infobash script, to help supporters having a clear picture about your initial installation base. It's in /etc/sidux-version or /etc/aptosid-version, by the way.
Greetings,

actually infobash doesnt use /etc/default/distro. It uses /etc/sidux-version or /etc/aptosid-version as slam mentioned to provide the version of the installed system.

/etc/default/distro is used by other tools like the installer and the usb installer so its best to leave it as it is
