While I like any project which tries to connect Knoppix and Debian
stronger I think the project you mentioned above is doing the second
step. In several threads in the debian-knoppix mailing list especially
I tried to explain how this connection between Debian and Knoppix
can be done. I hope we can discuss this at LinuxTag and Debconf 3 / Oslo.
If we will be able to bootstrap a Knoppix CD from a Debian mirror all
other Knoppix derivaties will be as easily to acheave as any Debian
package can be installed.
