OK, cool. :-)
Hmmm - looking at your wiki page, I just see one problem really:
"The build process requires the non-free
virtualbox-guest-additions-iso package, the rest of the build chain
and installed packages are DFSG compliant. "
For official images, we won't include non-free components/packages. Is
there any way to avoid this?
