The two concepts ("flavours"/ custom distros of debian, and [custom]
bootable/ live Debian CDs) have been discussed quite a bit recently on
-devel - see the various threads.

There seems to be a common desire to, where it makes sense at all, make
the tools part of Debian proper, such that these concepts can be readily
"deployed", and Debian the richer for its users.

Seems there are many lines of thought all pretty well aligned at the
moment :)

Inspiring stuff.
