There was a bof today here at debconf about the official CD-builder. The
tool will get completely reorganized for etch to be much more flexible
(and speedier and userfriendly and more ressource-friendly and...). I
suggested making it possible to generate a single CD and then later (not
necessarily at same build) generate a secondary CD with additional
packages (eg. other locales files or gnome desktop). That idea was
adopted but is (naturally) not highest priority.

The cd-builder team is interested in other ideas - a more formal
invitation will be posted to debian-custom, so those of you interested
in those issues have an eye open at that list.
