Sure. I haven't given much attention to live.d.n itself yet, instead
channeling my energy into the manual and the official Debian website.
I'll see what I can do to help guide end-users to the information
they're looking for.

Not interested in doing that.

Nothing has been done to adjust sizes at all. What you get is the same
as what you'd get with a default install of GNOME, KDE, etc. using
Tweaking live media sizes is a tough and thankless task that produces
non-standard results (people will switch from complaining that the sizes
are wrong to forever complaining "why don't you include package X, Y or
Z on your image?") and diverts energy from producing the tools, which is
the primary focus of this project.
