Also, we would really be pleased to contribute to a larger project, but
we also want to release «something» when we feel it is time to.

Did you already have a look?

In the TODO: go to Etch as base, evaluate using the gtk+ frontend of
d-i, make it more modular so that we could for example ship a KDE-based
version (the technical staff are mainly GNOME-addicts, though).
And still, keep it running on older machines (starting with PII or
equivalent with 128MB RAM and 3GB hdd) of the kind you can find for
nothing in second-hand shops.
