  Well, in the Debian Derivative Meeting (<http://www.ddeb.org/ddeb>)
  that took place during the Open Source World Conference
  (<http://www.opensourceworldconference.com/>) this week we talked
  about all the needs of Debian Customs Distributions and one of the
  tools we think is needed is a Live CD generator.

  In principle we talked about including the Knoppix tools or the
  Metadistros (http://metadistros.hispalinux.es/) ones, but nothing was

  One of my ideas about the Debian Live CD generator is to use other
  tools already in Debian (i.e. the debian-installer autodetection
  routines) and generate new ones from scratch or adapt existing ones,
  but anything that works is OK for me ... ;)
  Anyway, Andreas Tille is writting a document about the Custom Debian
  Distributions that sumarizes the things we talked about and after it's
  ready I'll try to initiate a discussion about the tools we need and
  will try to include all of them in Debian.
