Just send me a patch for the documentation if you think the time is right.

Surely it is most suited, but it is the most time consuming effort - at
least for the beginning.  So we have to options:

   1. Doing the remastering as anybody does currently and get fast results
      (one day of work should be enough).
   2. Take some more time and try to implement the bottum-up method
      which would save *much* time later on (I guess you could be ready
      with a new Live-CD after one hour (compared to one day it is
      woth the effort, IMHO)  So if we want to save time we should start

As I said before: He *likes* the idea but I said he does not know enough
about Debian and packaging and thus I would not join this effort (even if
he would like to provide help if necessary).

You should definitely do so.  It might be worth refering to my name and
the workshop I did at LinuxTag 2003.

Same for me.  This was the reason why I started the debian-knoppix
project to attract all the skilled Knoppix developer to let them work
on the idea.
