Hi Steve,

I’m asking from total ignorance, so forgive me if my question doesn’t make sense…

Is there a relatively simple way a normal Debian user (without special developer skills or access to special developer resources) can create a Debian Live CD/DVD/BD/USB-stick with their choice of packages?  The goal here would be for Sirish (and me too, for that matter) to be able to create our own Debian Live mate-desktop.  Generalizing a little bit: One could create a bootable Live USB-stick with a custom set of utilities (e.g. for network installation/testing/debugging).

Is that possible?
