I have to be honest saying I am not fun of cdbs since it add too much
abstruction to the packaging.  This is bacause, if something goes wrong,
I will be lost to do debugging.  But after seeing your slides, this may
be interesting tool.

If you can give nice short pointer and example document on cdbs
including information how to handle debugging, it may be an interesing
additon to nm-guide.

nm-guide is currently hosted at DDP CVS.


If you can made good diff, why not add it since I see many people use
