same answer as the last time you have asked me. what would it be good
for? i'm only remotly a desktop user, and certainly not a desktop developer.

It's good to make sure that Debian Live desktop images matches the
Debian Desktop users needs. I think that in the group you will be able

* More than have voice on the mailing list, rw access our svn being
able to prepare 'live flavored artwork' based on our debian-moreblue

* Make sure that the set of desktop related packages fit a live user need

and more. ;)

i know. as soon as we consider live-helper (which is rotting in NEW) as
ready, i'll coordinate this. ETA is about 2 to 4 weeks from now.

sounds great.

d-i and g-i on the same images, in terms of seperate boot option are
ready soon. in terms of 'launch d-i/g-i from a booted live-system as an
application', this requires, as far as i'm told, that the d-i people
provides special builds for that purpose.

Yeah, and I thought g-i was on track. Do you think that it will be
more like "win32 loader" or "ubiquity" in terms of usability ?

for the 'live-to-hdd' installation, we will most likely write something
on your own. plan is to have it done until mid of july.

'live-to-hdd' as in 'the same thing you're running here live on your
hd', ubiquity-like, right?

and well, lenny is far, far away...

i don't understand what you mean here.

This is like 'debian as you want it -to-hdd' and not simple
'live-to-hdd'. In other words the live cd would work simple as a g-i
bootstrap and not only as a live cd + ubiquity, but both options would
be way better.
