No doubt about this - I've read the description, but CDD has more goals
than just creating CDs.

which are released when Debian is released, and
"independent" derivatives too,  where   external means that   1) there
might be additional packages which are  not included in Debian

no control over the quality of this stuff.

2) they
have a different release schedule than Debian. So it's a matter of how
you use it..

... and how you define the noun "Custom Debian Distribution". (Yes,
I know the noun is and was missleading and I hate that I agreed to the
name change from "Debian _internal_ projects".)

Actually there are plans to add support  for it (I suggested it myself
[0]:), and it would be relatively easy.

Which would be great and as I said the tool itself sounds very cool
and we might be able to adopt things (or port it to a Debian internal
tool) but we just leave the goal we defined for a CDD.

Kind regards
