live-installer, jockey, usb-creator, simple-ccsm...
There's two things I wanted to talk about, related to LMDE.
What's interesting about LMDE is that it aims at providing the same
level of functionality as other editions of Mint. In other words, it's
facing a challenge: porting or re-writing from scratch some of the
features existing in Ubuntu and not found in Debian.
At the moment, we're fully focused on Mint 10, so work on LMDE won't
start again until December. The plan though, for us, is to either port
of rewrite the following tools:
Are Ubuntu or Debian devs already planning to do this? Or should we go
The second thing is about the live-installer. We mentioned it was
designed with Debian in mind and developed in a way that it could be
adopted by other distributions, including Debian itself. Ikey, could you
go through the configuration of the installer and how it would be useful
to others? We'll probably end up with forks on github.com and that's
cool (that way we'll all merge what we like and leave what we don't
need), but if anyone identifies changes related to branding... i.e.
things that are Mint specific and shouldn't be there, please don't
hesitate to give me a shout so we can remove them or package them
