That would depend.  What is your derivative going to do differently than
FreeBSD?

Which brings in the more general question: Why?  What's the purpose of
your derivative?  Why should people use yours over FreeBSD?

Not that there aren't possible good reasons.  ;)  But answering that will
probably tell you what you need to do to create your derivative.
