The Debian GNU/Minix project seems to actually exist, except mostly obscure. It appears to have been mentioned on the Lasalle Blog in 2006, and its also mentioned on a newer page of the Debian Wiki:

Why Debian GNU/Minix? Minix is a very small, reliable kernel, making it appropriate for embedded systems, of which I am a huge fan!
