Everyone wants to specify all the CDD data in a single place, and I
think everyone is kind of doing it in a way or another.

For example, the new supersimple-cdd-building-script from Vagrant (that
I'd like to see into cdd-dev soon, if possible) does it.  Free told me
he's doing something like that as well.  Everyone is.

I think everyone of us created some code that in some way overlaps with
what the others have done, and I think we share at least the goal of
having a CDD description somewhere, then running make-cdd and have the
ISO images built.

So, the question is: why don't we have that already?

My bet is that if we create a common standard, then for it to be adopted
everyone needs to change the way they work.  This is of course a burden:
it means asking too much to busy people working hard on their agendas.

How to overcome this?  I don't know yet.

An idea in my mind would be that since in Debian-NP we're thinking of
not being a CDD, but rather a group helping people in making their own
CDD, we are the perfect opportunity to spread what we agree is the best
and more comfortable way to do things.

Once some way of doing things is spread and gets more mature, it can be
considered a better replacement for some hacked script that one is using
and has not time to improve.

Better ideas are however quite welcome.  Also because in Debian-NP we
have rather unpredictable times :)
