Yeah, I know about this CD, and am very interested to get the list of
packages installed.  But I guess a lot of the recently added user
applications are missing from it, as it obviously fit on a CD.  I
guess we should also peek at the package list on the Snøfrix CD, which
is a spinoff live CD with desktop focus from the Skolelinux project.

I understood that, and it might be interesting to try to make such
live CD.  Exactly what kind of live CD we want is still out in the
blue.  I welcome comments and suggestions.

Is live DVDs accepted, for example, or should we strive to create 650
MiB images?  Is it enough to have concept live CDs without
translations (and drop all translations to save space), or should we
create language specific live images?  These and other questions need
to be answered.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
