I'm  almost done in preparing a  customised d-i  for the aGNUla/DeMuDi
CDD, and I have to say that this new d-i is sooo beautiful and easy to

I'm basing on the beta4 release, and I decided not to use debian-cd for the moment.

I simply replaced the pool/ and dist/ trees, which include:

1) all the packages needed by debootstrap
2) all the main/debian-installer section
3) an home made udeb which installs a package which customise 
   the base-config menu
4) the optional packages used by DeMuDi

Everything is running fine..

I still do not understand  which is the   proper way to  autoconfigure
XFree86, by now I'm using xdebconfigurator and dexconf.

Moreover it would be nice to have a tool which builds a minimum Debian
mirror  with  just the packages  needed  by  debootstrap and  the most
important udebs. I  think that this way we  could use debian-cd with a
bottom-up approach, without downloading a whole debian mirror.
