Which list to join? What document to read?

Well, then perhaps the issue is not about how to find related CDD
URLs, but which list to join? More general, what to do/how to
solve these following issues.

What should someone to do/learn/visit/join, if they do not
understand quiet well, chapter 6 (Technology) of the 
"Custom Debian Distributions" main document? I guess, that
the answer would be lurking here in the debian-custom list.

I make (and burn) an ISO image every weekend for the last two
years. The CDROM contains all recent updates of anything I would
like to have on my PC at home, like:
a. BOOT image --> rescue disk.
b. up-to-date debian packages. I just write down all the package
   names that I want, and a script will collect all recent
   packages, including their dependencies.
c. up-to-date linux related document including HOWTOs, debian
   documents, etc. Since I rsync them directly, the documents
   are usually more recent, compared to their related deb files.

1. Is that ISO image considered as a CDD? If not, what is that?

2. I am interested to make that ISO image by using debian tools and 
   utilities. I guess that I should learn on how "debian-cd" works.
   Are there any other tools that are more appropriate?

3. I am interested to modify the boot utility, including replacing
   a boot kernel. I guess that I should follow the "debian-boot" list.
   Are there any other list that I should follow?

4. I am having problem for discarding obsolete packages.
   I am not sure on what utility I should use. I guess that there
   should be an "apt" tool that do that.

5. I also still have not a clear idea on how to get a source file
   that is EXACTLY related to the debian package that is fetched.
   Even I am not sure, what I mean here :(.

Last, I am aware that actually my main problem is how to get/find 
more "spare time" :(. Well...
