Actually, this has nothing to do with Mozilla apart from the use of their technology as a platform:

The Webian project is a not-for-profit venture founded by Ben Francis. Ben is a full time software engineer at a startup in Cambridge (England).

It's not a Mozilla Labs project.

See here Webian's release announcement : http://webian.org/blog/2011/05/31/announcing-webian-shell-01-2/

They make it pretty clear that the project is only *featured* on Mozilla Labs, but that it does not come from there.
