[DebianGIS] OpenStreetmap.org Workstation Live CD using Debian?

After returning from the first OpenStreetmap.org conference, it
occurred to me how much help it would be for mapping parties and
people interested in testing the OSM tools if there was an Debian Live
CD with the packages needed.

Most of the packages are already in Debian, but some are still missing.

Such Live CD should at least contain the following:

 * postgis
 * mapnik
 * josm
 * osmarendrer
 * render@home
 * gosmore, <URL:http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Gosmore>
 * mapnik viewer (not yet released, will be available soon)
 * web browser with flash support for the web based map drawing tool
 * tools to download the planet file and update the postgis database.
   The database should probably be populated with current data when
   the Live CD is built.

Is this a goal anyone else is interested in working towards?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
