Ignore the PR. Look at Jim's statement (
Imad's statement (
https://meego.com/community/blogs/imad/2011/whats-next-meego), and Dawn's
statement (https://www.tizen.org/blogs/dawnfoster/2011/welcome-tizen). These
are all mostly free of marketing fluff and stick to the facts - including no
reference to LiMo. LiMo can fluff its feathers as much as it likes, but it's
not the LiMo platform going into Tizen.
I think you can safely assume LiMo platform is also dead, since the platform
that LiMo has is not being open-sourced as originally promised and they
stopped working on code-related activities a few months back. What is
actually happening is that Samsung Linux Platform (and not LiMo) is going to
form part of Tizen.

Tizen is a new project because it's unlikely Samsung would contribute to
something so widely perceived as "the platform formerly owned by Nokia",
amongst other reasons.
But until there's more hard details on what it is, it's premature to make

Until there's an official statement to confirm that, I wouldn't make any
assumptions, especially about package format and build system.
