If I read the announcement correctly there is a chance for additional
sponsoring ...

oh, right.

Is there any documentation about dig available?

It was carlospc's SoC project in the last year (Sledge was the
mentor), so there's some documentation about the first leg of
development[0], but not much about this second phase yet. I've
contacted carlos with no feedback from him, I, Otavio and Sledge
talked about the subject during debconf and he (Steve) was open to my
contributions and once I've 0.1 able to build daily or weekly images
in parallel with debian-cd, we will do so.

As I said - there should be ways to join in real life.

I hope so. FYI, I'm also working on Sacix CDD - www.sacix.org.br ,
site available in portuguese brazilian only, sorry. Sacix installs a
set of desktop related packages, ltsp and its preconfigured
dependencies (eg: dhcp, nfs) automatically, running ltsp-build-client
for the user into the postinst using just the d-i 'hooks' through
Simple-CDD, partitioning is up to the user, btw.
